In regards to wear parts how do I know which alloy is the best for its application?

Obviously there are many factors to consider when determining what alloy is required in any specific part. Alloy selection is predicated on factors such as heat and impact resistance, ductility, machineability, weldability, toughness, hardness and wear resistance. The best way to determine your options is to meet with a team of foundry specialists in product design and metallurgical understanding.  Big Grin
