Chrome-manganese-molybdenum steel for hardening in air or in oil with very good hardenability and good firmness during the heat. It is well-workable during the heat and due to an increased content of sulfur well-workable both in the soft-annealed state and the heat-treated state. The steel has good polishability, it can be cemented in the bath or in gas and also put on the hard-chrome.
Tools for processing of plastic substances such as big and middle molds, forming frames for casting of plastic substances and metals under the pressure. For less demanding tools there is a possibility to use the steel in the heat-treated state at 950 up to 1100N/mm2 without further heat treatment.
|Steel grade||Chemical composition in %||Hardness in state|
|C||Mn||Si||Cr||W||Mo||V||Ni max||Co||P max.||S max.||HB max.||HRC min.|
|Forging||850-1050||Cool slowly in dry ash or thick cross-sections in the furnace|
|Soft annealing||760-780||Warm few hours (according to the size of object), mostly four hours are enough and cool slowly in the furnace|
|Annealing to lower tension||600-650||Warm 1 to 2 hours and cool slowly in the furnace|
|Hardening||840-880||Cool in oil or in air at 180-220 °C|
|Tempering||640-680||Cool in air, the degree of tempering is set by hardness and toughness of instrument according to the tempering chart|
Chart of tempering values depending on the hardness:
Round bars: D20 - D303
Metal plates: s.20 - s.350
Blocks: 610x1600, 810x1200
We will deliver any semi-finished products from the above mentioned dimensions. Other dimensions, except for given stock supplies, have to be consulted with us.
Tool steel meets the requirements of various kinds of tools, e.g. for machining, hot- and cold-working, measuring instruments and die-casting moulds. We also offer high-speed steel.
Tool steel meets the requirements of various kinds of tools, e.g. for machining, hot- and cold-working, measuring instruments and die-casting moulds. These tool materials conform to great quality demands of steel, like temper, strength, toughness, resistance to tempering, hardening capacity, dimensional stability, etc. The range of tool steel in our store includes products from renowned manufacturers. We also supply high - speed steel.
Special tool steel is suitable for the manufacture of moulds, dies and pressing tools. This steel have better end-use properties than common classic steel, therefore it can help saving considerable amounts of money in manufacture.
This patented Swedish steel is distinguished by its high range of use. It is suitable for the manufacture of tools and moulds as well as machinery parts. This material can replace many kinds of classic tool and structural steel.
We supply these grades of steel: St52.3, C45, 16MnCr5, 42CrMo4
