Hot work tool steel with high temperature strength and wear resistance (higher than 1.2343) with high thermal shock resistance.
Plastic molds, die-casting and extrusion tools for light metal. Good toughness and thermal conductivity.
For forging dies, forging tools, hot shear blades, hot extrusion tools, punches, screw tools, steel bolts and ejector.
annealed max. 229 HB
Machinability: 10 (1 = very bad - 10 = good)
Flat, forged, annealed
Round, forged, annealed
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.
