EN/DIN 1.2344/ AISI H13/ JIS SKD 61Hot work steel with high mechanical strength, high wear resistance, as well as high tempering resistance, good shock resistance, good thermal conductivity, high hardenability, combined with good machinability and polishability. Refined through an electro-slag-remelting process and a tailored thermo-mechanical processing, this hot work grade can achieve very high levels of toughness. Applications:
- Dies, plungers and containers for light alloys die casting, as well as
- Extrusion tools such as dies and mandrels, pressure pads, containers, extrusion stems, liners and spindles for extrusion presses.
- Shear blades, dies and punches for hot stamping, hot rolling rolls, nozzles, sliders, die inserts for screw and rivet stamping, as well as plastic injection molds for thermosets and thermoplastics.
- Annealed up to ~ 230HB
- 38 ÷ 56 HRc
