Tool steel casting

Xinhui Precision Casting also provides many different grades of tool steel castings

Xinhui Precision Casting offers tool steel castings heat-treated to suit your needs. For your part requires secondary machining operations, we can supply your component as low as RC 20 or as high as RC 60. Xinhui Precision Casting offers big selctions at any investment casting foundry. Working with both ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, our versatility enables us to cast more than decades of alloys and tool steel castings.

There’s no substitute for the hardness and abrasion-resistant properties of heat-treated tool steel castings. Xinhui Precision Casting stocks a wide variety of tool steel alloys specifically engineered for impact and edge-based tools such as axes, mining equipment, metal and wood cutting tools, and stamping dies.

We specialize in casting highly complex parts in the 0 to 5kgs range, and are equipped to produce tool steel castings up to 15kgs. Advantages of the tool steel investment casting process include:

Intricate, near-net shape parts without secondary machining
Easily convert multiple parts into single assemblies
Thin walls for weight reduction opportunities
Surface texture of 125 rms or better
Tolerances within +/- .005 inches per linear inch
Highly complex dimensional geometry
From concept to completion, Xinhui Precision Casting ensures that each tool steel casting meets the form, fit, and function of your design.

FORM – TOOL STEEL CASTING PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
Whether your design requires minimum distortion under hot-working conditions or high levels of hardness, Xinhui Precision Casting can determine the optimal grade of tool steel. Tool steel is generally divided into three classes; cold work steels, hot work steels, and high speed steels.

Cold work steels, available in 01, A2, D2, S7, and W1, are typically used for temperatures below 400° F. These steels have high levels of wear resistance, impact toughness, and hardness.

Hot work and high speed steels generally have similar characteristics to cold work steels, but can withstand much higher temperatures before experiencing distortion.

FIT – TOOL STEEL FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERISTICS
Tool steels are aptly named as they as commonly used to create tools. Toughness, abrasion resistance, cutting edges, and distortion resistance vary depending on temperature and grade.

Secondary heat treating processes, such as annealing and tempering, allows tool steel to achieve various levels of hardness ranges from RC 20 to RC 60.

FUNCTION – TOOL STEEL PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS
High carbon tool steels are normally used for cutting and high impact applications such as stamping, metal cutting, drilling, and chiseling.
