Alloy Steel bar - Die Steel is mainly used for manufacture of cold-work dies with high abrasive resistance
and small shock load.
Die steel is a steel used to make molds such as cold die, hot forging die, and die-casting die. Molds are the
main processing tools for manufacturing parts in industrial
sectors such as machinery manufacturing, radio instruments, motors, and electrical appliances.
Die steel can be roughly divided into three types: cold-rolled die steel, hot-rolled die steel and plastic die
steel for forging, stamping, cutting, die-casting and so on.
Due to the different use of various molds and complicated working conditions, the steel for molds should have
high hardness, strength, wear resistance, sufficient
toughness, high hardenability and quenching according to the working conditions of the molds they
manufacture. Hard and other process performance. Due to the
different uses and the complicated working conditions, the performance requirements for the steel for the
mold are also different.
