Our own SIHARD brand includes cold-work tool steels.
The SIHARD brand steels are adapted for machining and cutting metal, wood and synthetic materials and have the characteristics of dimensional stability, high compressive strength and the required toughness, considering their intended use. The adjusted chemical composition and processing technology provides SIHARD brand steel with the necessary resistance to adhesion, abrasion, cut-edge fragmentation, the possibility of nitration, hard PVD and EDM coatings.
SIHARD brand steels are used for cyclically loaded tools such as: punchers, pressers, die inserts for the compaction of powders, knives/blades, forging, rolling and deep drawing tools. Tool steel is normally delivered in a soft-annealed condition.
