  • Patent number: 7381369
    Abstract: Provided is free cutting alloy excellent in machinability, preserving various characteristics as alloy. The free cutting alloy contains: one or more of Ti and Zr as a metal element component; and C being an indispensable element as a bonding component with the metal element component, wherein a (Ti,Zr) based compound including one or more of S, Se and Te is formed in a matrix metal phase. The free cutting alloy is more excellent in machinability, preserving various characteristics as alloy at similar levels to a conventional case. The effect is especially conspicuous, for example, when a compound expressed in a chemical form of (Ti,Zr)4C2(S,Se,Te)2 as the (Ti,Zr) based compound is formed at least in a dispersed state in the alloy structure.

  • Patent number: 6793746
    Abstract: Disclosed are stainless steel parts, particularly, parts of electronic apparatus, with which troubles caused by so-called “sulfide gas” mainly of H2S must be avoided. Release of the sulfide gas from the parts is effectively suppressed. The parts have high hardness and corrosion resistance, and can be produced with high finishing accuracy. The stainless steel parts are produced by processing a ferritic or a martensitic stainless steel of a specific alloy composition by forging and/or machining to the shape of the part followed by quenching and tempering, or quenching and tempering followed by machining to the shape of the part, and applying a solution of oxidative acid to the surface of the part so as to dissolve and remove sulfides existing on the surface of the part.
