Tool steels – the very core of your tooling equipment

Tool steels combine high hardness, wear and temperature resistance and are used to produce moulds, stamps and cutting tools in multiple industries. Combining an iron base with different alloying elements creates a variety of tool steels with different properties.

Tooling consists of components used for creating geometrical shapes in different production processes. These processes include casting, cutting, extrusion, injection moulding, stamping and assembly. Tooling components are often produced in low volumes, so choosing a durable and cost-effective tool steel is vital.

The additive manufacturing technology provides substantial benefits for industries in need of tool steels for their tooling equipment. For instance, moulding tools can easily be designed and manufactured with internal cooling channels thanks to additive manufacturing.

Höganäs offers metal powders in both the AM and Amperprint® series for all kinds of tool steel applications. The offering covers a wide range of industrial demands in terms of cost, properties and standardization level.
