Bohler-Uddeholm His a chromium-molybdenum- vanadium. Aluminium, mag- nesium alloys,. Backers, die-holders, liners, dummy blocks, stems.

Chromium hot-work tool steels are classified as group H steels by the AISI classification system. This series of steels start from Hto H19.

Hchromium hot-work steel is widely used in hot and cold work tooling applications. Due to its excellent combination of high toughness and fatigue resistance His . AISI Hhot work tool steel is used more than other tool steel. Applications: Standard material for hot forming tools, extrusion tools, forging dies, pressure casting tools, hot shear knives, . Material Notes: High hardenability, excellent wear resistance and hot toughness. Hhas good thermal shock resistance and will tolerate some water cooling in service.

Nitriding will improve hardness, but can diminish shock.

As a reliable hot work steel it is suitable for a wide variety of applications. Plastic deformation is one of the causes of failure of hot forging tools, where the tool deforms to such an extent that parts formed are no longer within dimensional tolerance. His suitable for demanding hot work applications, it combines high resistance to heat checking, excellent polishability, resistance to thermal shock and good size stability. Diamond Metals can provide in-house grinding, pre-squaring, and CAD capable flame . This paper deals with establishing of building parameters for 1. Htool steel for use in die casting applications.

H) tool steel processed using Selective Laser Melting (SLM) technology with layer thickness of µm. In the first part of the work, testing matrix of models in the form of a cube with chamfered edge were built under various building parameters . Grade Summary: H-is a chromium, molybdenum, vanadium hot work tool steel which is has high hardenability and excellent toughness, this is due to the fact that the material contains molybdenum and vanadium which are strengthening agents. The chromium content of H-resists softening when at . Department of Metallurgy and Materials Science.

The effects of austenitizing and tempering temperatures on the microstructure, as-quenched and tempered hardness capability, and Charpy V- notch impact resistance of . Tool Steels (Dand H) for Cutting blades. It is widely used for aluminum, zinc, and magnesium die casting dies where resistance to thermal fatigue due to alternated heating and cooling cycles is of primary importance. Tool steel refers to a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are particularly well- suited to be made into tools.

Their suitability comes from their distinctive hardness, resistance to abrasion and deformation, and their ability to hold a cutting edge at elevated temperatures.

As a result, tool steels are suited for use in the shaping of .
