Back to category page

1.2379 ESR (X153CrMoV12) directly from stock & cut to your required dimensions!

International identifiers

The ledeburitic cold work steel 1.2379 ESR has an improved material property due to the electro-slag remelting process (ESR). Our ESR material is used when better material purity, particularly high tensile strength and compressive strength are required. The material 1.2379 ESR with high resistance to wear and abrasion and edge-holding properties, exhibits a high resistance against abrasive and adhesive wear.

Advantages of saw cut

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.
