Cutting 4130 Chromoly Steel with Houston Metal Sawing

Let’s go see Austin at Houston Metal Sawing and learn how they cut 4130 Chromoly Tubing.

What is Chromoly?

Chromoly (from “chromium” and “molybdenum” – two of its major alloying elements) is known for its strength and abrasion resistance while still being easy to machine.

You’ll find chromoly in the oil and gas industry, the nuclear industry and fossil fuel power stations but it can be used for a wide range of applications.
