tool steel line

Tool steels are any of a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are particularly suitable for making tools and implements, including cutting tools, dies, hand tools, knives, etc. Their suitability comes from their unique hardness, wear resistance and resistance to deformation, as well as their ability to retain their cutting edge at high temperatures. 

Tool steels introduction

Tool steels are therefore suitable for forming other materials, such as cutting, machining, stamping or forging. There are six groups of tool steels: water-hardening, cold-work, shock-resistant, high-speed, hot-work, and special purpose. The choice of group to select depends on cost, working temperature, required surface hardness, strength, shock resistance, and toughness requirements. The more severe the service condition (higher temperature, abrasiveness, corrosiveness, loading), the higher the alloy content and consequent amount of carbides required for the tool steel.

Application of tool steel

Steel is commonly used in a large number of applications where reinforced framing and structural support is required.

Structures such as roads, buildings, bridges, airports, and other infrastructures are often built with steel because of their offered reliable strength and fracture resistance.

For cutting: drills, taps, reamers, circular saws, gear tools, broaches, planing knives, etc.

For tooling: various hot work and cold work dies, punches, cutters, strip cutters, various gadroon tools, etc.
