Uddeholm Carmo is a prehardened medium alloyed tool steel suitable for short and medium run tooling in applications where a very high chipping resistance is required. The property profile makes Uddeholm Carmo a robust cold work tool steel for heavy duty blanking and forming. It is delivered prehardened to 240-270 HB.
Short tool making lead times
Safe and consistent production
Cost efficient tool making/production
The prehardened delivery condition makes flame- , induction or laser hardening easier
High reliability for tools in severe cold work applications where there is a high risk of chipping
Reduced maintenance and downtime costs combined with increased productivity due to the reduced likelihood of premature failures.
Good weldability and the availability of welding electrodes with the same chemical composition as Uddeholm Carmo.
High toughness and ductility
Good wear resistance (adhesive-mixed wear profile)
Good through hardening properties
Good stability in hardening
Very good flame-, induction- and laser hardenability
