1.2083 (X40Cr14) annealed max. 241 HB

1.2083 (X40Cr14) directly from stock & cut to your required dimensions.

International term:

AISI 420, SS2314

Application field:

1.2083 is a corrosion-resistant plastic mould steel with a high hardness after the quenching. Low distortion through-hardening steel with high hardenability and good polishability.
This steel is mainly used in processes with chemically aggressive and acidic plastics such as duro- or thermoplastics, PVC-arminoplastics, plastics for injection mold inserts or for special machine parts in the food industry.

From stock:

Flat, forged, annealed


Benefit of sawn cuts:

The processing with the saw is a mechanical processing of the material, which results in a significantly lower unintended deformation and increased hardness for the existing structure, such as the thermal cutting.

Thus, the machined workpiece has a homogeneous structure even at the edge, which does not change in the continuation of the material.
This circumstance allows immediate finishing of the workpiece with milling or drilling . So it is not necessary to anneal the material or make a similar operation beforehand.
