Tool steel and special  steel

Cold working tool steel

Cold working steel has a high chromium content, with high surface strength, tensile strength, hardness and very good wear resistance. It is used for various cold forming tools, such as cutting tools, measuring tools, etc.

We have the following steel grades in stock:

  • W. Nr. 1.2379

    Diameter: 10 mm–423 mm
    Wide flat: thickness 26 mm – 90 mm, width 300 mm – 505 mm
    Blocks: thickness 100 mm – 400 mm, width 600 mm – 1010 mm
  • W. Nr. 1.2842

Besides above steel grades, we also deliver the following materials: W. Nr. 1.2436, 1.2080, 1.2360, 1.2362, 1.2363, 1.2631, 1.4034, OH 255.

Hot working tool steel

The properties of hot working steel are the strength and hardness necessary for the tools to function at high temperatures. Such steel is used for the manufacture of tools for hot working, e.g. tools for pressure casting, hot cutting, aluminium extrusion, etc.

We have the following steel grades in stock:

  • W. Nr. 1.2343

    Diameter: 15 mm–353 mm
    Wide flat: thickness 26 mm–90 mm, width 505 mm
    Blocks: thickness 100 mm–400 mm, width 600 mm–1010 mm

    Blocks: thickness 400 mm, width 600 mm
  • W. Nr. 1.2344

    Blocks: thickness 400 mm, width 600 mm
  • W. Nr. 1.2344 ESR

    Blocks: thickness 400 mm, width 600 mm

Besides above steel grades, we also deliver the following materials: W. Nr. 1.2365, 1.2367, 1.2714.

Tool steel for plastics forming

Tools for plastics forming are to withstand high pressures and temperatures. Such steel is distinguished for its wear resistance and, in certain cases, also corrosion resistance. It is used for the manufacture of active parts and base plates for tools.

We have the following steel grades in stock:

  • W. Nr. 1.2312+QT

    Diameter: 15 mm–302 mm
    Flat: thickness 10 mm–110 mm
    Bloks: thickness 120 mm–400 mm, width 600 mm–1010 mm
  • W. Nr. 1.2738+QT

    Blocks:  thickness 400 mm, width 600 mm

Special steel

Special steel complies with very specific standards and is used in the power industry, oil and gas industry, aviation and chemical industry, etc.

We supply the following materials: W. Nr. 1.4006, 1.4913, 1.4923, 1.4122, 1.4034, 1.4724 …

High speed steel

High speed steel is particularly used for the manufacture of cutting tools (drills, knives, milling cutters).

We have the following steel grades in stock:

  • W. Nr. 1.3343

    Diameter: 12 mm–200 mm
  • W. Nr. 1.3355
