Understanding Shock-Resisting Tool Steels for Manufacturing Punches and Dies

Tool steels are carbon and alloys steels that have distinct characteristics such as hardness, wear resistance, toughness, and resistance to softening at high temperatures. These steels are comprised of carbide-forming elements such as chromium, vanadium, molybdenum, tungsten, cobalt, and nickel in different combinations. They are primarily treated with heat to improve hardness, making them usable […]
