Tools Steel

Tool steels comprise a large group of carbon and alloy steels that share good wear resistance as a common and important feature. They are mainly intended for manufacturing tools that are used for the different operations of forming, cutting, machining or casting metals and alloys. Typical examples include dies, files, punches, burs, chisels, shears, blades, molds, etc.
Tool steels are traditionally classified into seven main groups, namely:

The choice of the steel group and type is determined mainly by how the tool will be used, which in turn determines the optimal characteristics it must have for its durability. This choice depends then on a number of criteria, including tensile strength, hardness, service temperature, thermal fatigue, toughness, dimensional stability, etc.
