Cold working tool steels are high carbon steels that contain alloy additions of tungsten, manganese, chromium and molybdenum, which increase the hardenability of the steels. The high carbon content produces adequate wear resistance for short run applications.

General Applications

Cold working tool steels are generally suitable for all types of blanking and forming dies, gauges and collets. Typical application are dies, trimming dies, coining dies, punches, shear blades, fuller, phillips head forming die, thermo-setting resin forming dies, cold forming dies, thread rolls, fine blanking, stripper plates, profiling rollers & press tools, brick moulds, chisels, pneumatic tools and etc.
