Böhler Tool & High Speed Steel

Tool steel is often divided into three main segments; steel for cold working, hot work and plastic mould applications. Cold work steel is often used in the manufacturing of stamping and blanking of different sheet metals. Hot work steel is mostly used to make tools for forging, high-pressure die casting and extrusion dies. Plastic mould steel is used for moulds and dies that produce plastic products.

Powder-metallurgy steel is the highest quality of tool steel and high speed steel in the market. PM steels are especially good for applications where a combination of wear, chipping and cracking resistance is required. Tools made of PM steels extend the lifetime of tools extensively.
