Powder Metal Steel


Compared to conventional tool steel, the 3rd Generation Powder Metallurgy Tool Steel Manufacturing Process achieves better overall tooling economy through better machinability, better dimensional stability during heat treatment, and longer tool life. These properties will reduce the need for maintenance and increase the availability in production. The quality of the manufactured parts will be improved and delivery service maintained by the tool user. Please select from the list below to find out more about our PM steel.
