  • High Speed Steel

    High Speed Steels are high alloy; W-Mo-V-Co-Cr containing steels designed to cut metal and other materials efficiently at high speeds. They must stand up to the extreme heat generated at the tool's cutting edge. Typical high speed tools include twist drills, spade drills, end mills, taps, reamers, broaches, hobs, punches, form tools and tool bits.

  • Hot Work Tool Steel

    Tool steels used in hot forming and die casting applications. These steels require a good combination of high-temperature strength(hot hardness and temper resistance), wear resistance, toughness and heat check resistance. Typical applications include forging dies, hot upset dies, die inserts, extrusion tooling including liners, dummy blocks, stems and die casting dies.

  • Cold Work Tool Steel

    Cold work tool steels are used in applications which require a good combination of wear resistance, toughness and compressive strength allowing metal forming, cutting and stamping operations to be performed. Typical applications include blanking, drawing, cold extrusion, fine blanking, thread rolling, knives, metal forming, powder compacting, rolling, shearing, rotary dies, cold forging and swaging dies.
