Cold work steels

Hardness alone is not enough!


The typical properties of BÖHLER cold-working steels—high hardness, good toughness, compressive strength, and high wear resistance—make them useful for cutting and punching tools, dies, blades, embossing and drawing dies, hobs, thread rollers, threading dies, and much more. Rapid availability, good economy, and long tool life are the major criteria for selecting a material.
