GSF

Characteristics

Nickel-chrome–molybdenum-vanadium steel GSF from the production of German steelworks KIND&Co heat-treated to the value of 1.350 Mpa. The steel has higher toughness and higher hardness during the heat than the classic steel W. Nr. 1.2714 while the resistance to the hot abrasion remained the same. Due to the already carried out heat treatment the production cycle of die can be shortened and the higher effectiveness of production can be reached.

Suitability

The steel GSF is appropriate for the production of forge tools, especially the dies under forging drop hammers.

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
