Type 416 stainless steel is used for shafts, axles, gears, screws, bolts and any part that requires considerable machining. Should not be used for vessels under high pressures.
Type 416 stainless steel is a martensitic, free machining grade that can be hardened by heat treating to increase strength and hardness. The alloy exhibits machinability that is better than austenitic grades but sacrifices corrosion resistance.
