Tool steel is a special type of steel that is designed for high hardness, strength and wear resistance. This steel is used to make tools that are used for cutting, forming and creating other materials.
There are many different types of tool steel, each with certain properties and uses. The most common types include high-speed steels, chromium steels, tungsten steels and high carbon tool steels.
High-speed steels are the most widely used type of tool steel and are known for their high hardness and wear resistance. These steels are often used for the manufacture of cutting and milling tools.
Chrome steels have a high chromium content, which increases their resistance to wear and corrosion. They are used to make tools such as drill bits, riveting tools and other metal forming tools.
Tungsten steels are excellent for making tools that are designed to work with hard materials such as steel alloys or ceramics. They have high hardness and strength, making them a suitable material for the manufacture of tools for grinding, machining and milling.
High carbon tool steels are very hard and strong and have high wear resistance. These steels are often used to make metal forming tools and other materials such as sheet metal shears.
The use of the right type of tool steel is key to the successful production of quality tools and parts. Tool steel must be strong, wear resistant and have the correct hardness for the application. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
