Cold Work Tool Steel

    Choosing the right tool steel for the application becomes more and more important as the demands on the tool increases. What are these demands?

    The tool must have sufficient wear resistance.

    The tool must perform reliably and not fail due to premature chipping, cracking or plastic deformation.

    An optimal tooling economy – the lowest possible tooling cost (including maintenance) per part produced – can only be achieved if the correct tool steel for the application in question is used.
