Our business objective is to offer tooling solutions to the hot work industry with the goal of increasing productivity and optimizing tool life. As a result of our experience in both the production and research of hot work die steels, Böhler-Uddeholm has been able to consistently improve material quality with regard to toughness, temper resistance, homogeneity, and degree of purity. These material improvements provide considerable advantages to both the toolmaker and end user, including the following:

  • Resistance to heat checking
  • Erosion resistance
  • Increased hot strength

...and ultimately, longer tool life.
