Carpenter Technology Corporation’s PROJECT 70 + PDB stainless steel, a family of machining bar designed specifically for use with CNC Swiss-type screw machines, are precision drawn to ASTM half standard or ISO H9 tolerances and possess characteristics that can help machine shops maximize their productivity, the company says. The new stainless attributes include chamfered ends, improved straightness and tighter OD tolerances for consistent size along the entire length of the bar and minimal “out of round” condition. 

PROJECT 70+ PDB stainless will initially be sold in seven nominal diameters from 0.2500" to 0.6250" with 144" standard lengths. The material will be available in four commonly used grades, furnished in condition A, including PROJECT 70+ PDB Type 303 stainless, PROJECT 70+ PDB Type 304/304L stainless, PROJECT 70+ PDB Type 316/316L stainless, and PROJECT 70+ PDB Type 416 stainless.
