8. Cr12-Common cold work die steel (American steel D3, Japanese steel skd1)

Performance and application: Cr12 steel is a widely used cold die steel, belonging to the high carbon type and high chromium type of Laplace steel. The steel has good hardenability and wear resistance; due to the carbon content of Cr12 steel As high as 2.3%, its impact toughness is poor, brittleness is large, and uneven eutectic carbides are easily formed; due to its good wear resistance, Cr12 steel is mainly used to make cold punching dies, punches, blanking dies, cold heading dies, etc. , Powder metallurgy with low impact load, high wear-resistant drill sleeves, gauges, drawing dies, punching dies, coils, drawing dies, cold pressing dies and other punching dies.

After high temperature tempering, it has high hardness, high toughness and good wire cutting performance.. It is suitable for precision cold punching dies, drawing dies, thread rolling dies, cold punching dies, punches, etc.,

10. DCCr12MoV- wearable chromium steel

Compared with Cr12 steel, Mo can reduce carbide segregation and improve hardenability. V can refine grains and improve toughness. The steel has high hardenability. The cross section can be completely quenched below 400mm, and it can still maintain good hardness and wear resistance at 300~400°C. It has higher toughness than Cr12, small volume change during quenching, high wear resistance, and good comprehensive mechanical properties. Therefore, we can manufacture all kinds of molds with large cross-sections, complex shapes and high impact force, such as ordinary drawing dies, punching dies, punching dies, blanking dies, trimming dies, rolling dies, drawing dies, cold Extrusion dies, cold shears, circular saws, standard tools, measuring tools, etc.
