Casting rail clips material classification

There are many types of rail clips, including casting, forging, machining, etc. Among them, the casting rail clips are one of the more widely used forms. The casting rail clips are made of cast steel. The material of casting steel is divided into ordinary carbon steel, alloy steel, and special steel.
Cast carbon steel: Cast steel with carbon as the main alloying element and small amounts of other elements. Casting low carbon steel with carbon content less than 0.2%, casting medium carbon steel with a carbon content of 0.2% to 0.5%, and casting high carbon steel with a carbon content greater than 0.5%. With the increase of carbon content, the strength and hardness of cast carbon steel increase.
Cast low alloy steel: Cast steel containing alloying elements such as manganese, chromium, and copper. The total amount of alloying elements is generally less than 5%, which has greater impact toughness and better mechanical properties through heat treatment. Casting low alloy steel has better performance than carbon steel, which can reduce the quality of parts and improve the service life.
Casting special steel: Alloy cast steel made to meet special needs, with a wide variety, usually containing one or more high-alloying elements to obtain certain special properties.
In fact, the materials of the casting rail clips are also relatively diverse. When using, you should choose and buy according to your actual needs, so as to play a good application advantage. The track pressure plate is a common accessory in our life, and it cannot be missing. If there is no track pressure plate, when the train runs on the track, it will have a greater impact, causing the deviation of the track and affecting the operation of the train.
