Most tools and dies are made with tool steels that require a proper quench and temper process to attain the optimum mechanical characteristics. The choice of material depends on the nature of the work performed with the tool. Tools can work at high temperatures and/or high speeds and/or repetitively.

BENEFITS

  • Huge range of mechanical characteristics
  • Large choice of steels
  • Wear and fatigue resistance can be greatly improved by surface heat treatment (nitriding, for example)
