Other information: Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE: CRS) is a recognized leader in high-performance specialty alloy-based materials production for critical applications in the aerospace, defense, transportation, energy, industrial, medical, and consumer electronics markets.
Founded in 1889, the business has evolved to become a pioneer in premium specialty alloys, including titanium, nickel, and cobalt, as well as alloys specifically engineered for additive manufacturing (AM) processes and soft magnetics applications. Carpenter recently expanded its capabilities to provide a complete 'powder-to-part' solution to accelerate materials innovation, offer rapid prototyping, and streamline parts production.
Main metal products sold by the firm include alloy steels (including iron-cobalt-vanadium soft magnetic alloys; precipitation hardenable nickel-based alloys; austenitic nitrogen-bearing, chrome-nickel alloy valve steels); corrosion resistant alloys (e.g. titanium powder alloys; austenitic nitrogen-strengthened stainless steels; superaustenitic stainless steels); free / improved machining alloys (including free-machining austenitic stainless steel; chrome-nickel alloy steels for parts subject to heavy shock and wear); high hardness / wear resistance alloys (e.g. non-magnetic cobalt-based alloys; double-vacuum melted, iron-cobalt-nickel alloys; vacuum induction melted and electroslag remelted nonmagnetic cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloys). This list also includes high strength alloys (including stainless duplex two-phase alloys; double-vacuum melted, iron-cobalt-nickel alloys; nickel-free austenitic stainless alloys with high nitrogen content); high strength-to-weight ratio alloys (e.g. martensitic age-hardening stainless steels; high-strength martensitic precipitation-hardenable alloys; titanium powders; arc melted cobalt-free high strength high toughness quenched and tempered alloys), etc.
Alloy and specialty steels produced by the firm include bearing and gear steel (including 16NCD13, a premium quality low alloy carburizing case hardenable vacuum arc remelted steel), valve steel such as 21-12N (an austenitic nitrogen-bearing chrome nickel alloy with excellent high-temperature strength, hardness and corrosion-resistance properties) and 21-4N (a nitrogen-strengthened austenitic valve steel).
Principal Cartech production sites are at Orwigsburg, PA (EAF, casting, rolling); Bridgeville, PA (powder plant); Latrobe, PA (electric arc furnace, argon oxygen decarburization, electro-slag remelting, vacuum arc remelting, ingot casting, rolling, surface finishing); Maharashtra, India (Kalyani Carpenter Special Steels - EAF, ESR, LF, vacuum degassing, VOD, ingot and continuous casting and bar rolling plus bright bar). Carpenter Technology Corporation also operate a metal refining plant and forgings plant (radial forge) in Athens, Alabama, USA.
