Medium carbon ferro manganese is a commonly used alloy material with many advantages. The advantages are described in detail below in order to better understand the characteristics and applications of the material.


Characteristics and applications of the material.

  1. High strength:

Medium carbon ferro manganese has a high strength and can withstand large loads in many mechanical and structural applications. Its high strength makes it an ideal material in many industrial fields.


  1. Excellent wear resistance:

Medium carbon ferromanganese has excellent wear resistance and is particularly suitable for applications requiring anti-wear properties. It can be used in harsh environmental conditions to maintain its wear resistance for a long time, thus extending its service life.


  1. Good toughness:

Medium carbon ferromanganese has good toughness and can maintain shape and structural integrity when impacted or squeezed. This makes it ideal for manufacturing parts and structures that require shock, shock or deformation resistance.


  1. Good corrosion resistance:

Medium carbon ferromanganese has high corrosion resistance and can be used in humid, acidic or alkaline environments for a long time without corrosion. This makes it ideal for many chemical processing or Marine applications.


  1. Easy to process:

Medium carbon ferromanganese can be prepared in the conventional iron ore smelting process, easy to cast molding, but also easy to pressure processing or hot processing. It can improve its performance and mechanical properties by stamping, quenching, heat treatment and other processes to meet the needs of different applications.


Production process of medium carbon ferromanganese

The main raw materials for the preparation of medium carbon ferromanganese are manganese ore and blast furnace pig iron. In general, the manganese content of medium carbon ferromanganese is between 65% and 85%. Starting from the raw material, the production process of medium carbon ferromanganese can be divided into the following steps:


Step 1: Pretreat

Manganese ore and pig iron need to be crushed and screened to ensure low impurities and uniform particle size. This helps to improve melting efficiency and yield.


Step 2: Melt

Manganese ore and pig iron are melted by blast furnace or electric furnace to produce alloy liquid steel. In the smelting process, it is also necessary to add an appropriate amount of auxiliary agents such as coke, limestone, silica ash and silicon manganese to accelerate the melting speed and increase the melting temperature.


Step 3: Pouring

After the smelting is completed, the alloy liquid molten steel needs to be poured into the mold for cooling to form a solid medium carbon ferromanganese block. The resulting medium carbon ferromanganese blocks are polished and classified to obtain products of different specifications.


Processing technology of medium carbon ferromanganese

Medium carbon ferromanganese usually requires some processing processes to make parts and products of different shapes.


Step 1: Preparation before processing

Before processing, the surface treatment of medium carbon ferromanganese is required. First, the desired shape and size are obtained by grinding or casting. Then, the mechanical properties, wear resistance and corrosion resistance are improved by heat treatment and surface treatment.


Step 2: Processing

Milling, turning, planing, drilling and grinding are mainly used in the processing of medium carbon ferromanganese. In the cutting and drilling process, the cutting rate and feed rate should be appropriately reduced by using the tool or drill to prevent the tool from sticking or the bit from breaking. In the milling and grinding process, the cutting liquid is used to cool the cutting to maintain the stability and surface quality of the cutting.


Step 3: Post-processing

After processing of medium carbon ferro manganese, surface treatment is also required. Common methods include heat treatment, chemical treatment and electroplating treatment. Through these processes, the hardness, corrosion resistance and wear resistance of medium carbon ferro manganese can be improved, and its service life and corresponding mechanical properties can be improved.
