Uddeholm Calmax is a 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 Calmax a robust cold work tool steel for heavy duty blanking and forming.
Uddeholm Calmax is very useful for severe cold work applications where there are very high demands on chipping resistance
Reduced maintenance and downtime costs combined with increased productivity due to the reduced likelihood of premature failures
Reduced maintenance and downtime costs combined with increased productivity due to simplified maintenance procedures
Good weldability and the availability of welding electrodes with the same chemical composition as Uddeholm Calmax
Good flame-, induction- and laser hardenability
High toughness and ductility
Good wear resistance (adhesive-mixed wear profile)
