For tool steel – toughness, resistance to wear & corrosion, strength & resistance to distortion & warping during heat treatment are its most important properties. These properties are the condition under which it is manufactured. For purpose of comparison, the steels used to manufacture tablet press toolinghave been categorised below:
It is a General Purpose Steel which is a Oil Hardened Non Shrinking Steel which has High Hardenability and is commonly used for Blanking & Stamping Punches.
Is a tool steel grade with exceptional impact resistance plus the highest hardenability of shock resisting grade of Tool Steel due to which is commonly used in Tablet Compression Punches for its heavy load bearing capacity.
