W. NR. 1.2842

(copy 1)

Characteristics

Manganese–chrome–vanadium steel with the middle hardenability for hardening in oil, particularly good dimensional stability at the heat treatment, good resistance to the wear and cutting power. Considerable sensitivity to cooling by water during the hardening and tempering, good polishability, good ductility at the heat and good workability in the annealed state.

Suitability

Tools for cold cutting, i.e. all kinds of tools for cutting on presses and punching of materials of smaller thicknesses, especially difficult-shape punching dies and cutting punches requiring very good dimensional stability at the heat treatment. Shear blades for cutting of materials of smaller thicknesses, plate and disc knives for cutting of the paper etc. Tools for cold forging, i.e. tools for bending, rolling, drawing and punching of materials of smaller thicknesses. Small molds for working of plastics and rubber, less stressed molds for working of powder substances, porcelain and ceramic materials. Gauges of all kinds, rulers, conductive laths, patterns, calibres.

Heat treatment of steel W.Nr. 1.2842

WayTemperature [°C]Procedure
Forging850-1050Cool slowly in calm air or better e.g. in dry ash
Soft annealing680-720Warm few hours (according to the size of object), mostly four hours are enough and cool slowly in the furnace
Annealing to lower tension600-650Warm 1 to 2 hours and cool slowly in the furnace
Hardening740-800Small objects
780-820Big objects
Tempering150-250Cool in air (cannot get into the water!), the degree of tempering is set by hardness and toughness of instrument according to the tempering chart

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 has 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
