Hot working tool steels are used in the hot-forming of work-pieces made of iron and non-ferrous metals as well as alloy derivatives at high temperatures. They are utilised in processes such as pressure die casting, continuous casting, extrusion and drop forging as well as in tube and glass manufacturing.

General Applications

Die casting, forging, extrusion and pressing dies, shear blades, sleeves, plunger and etc.
