In its cold drawn state, 1020 has high machinability and is a preferred steel grade for many manufacturers. 1018 steel is used over 1020 for applications that require machining, as it responds to machining fairly well. 1018 is most commonly used in high volume screw machine parts including shafts, spindels, pins and rods. Important Design Equations - AnalysisChampcan consider this to be a statics problem. The material of the shaft AB is hot-rolled AISI 1018 steel (Table A20).
