AISI S1 60WCrV8 1.2550 Cold Work Steel

Introduction:

1.2550 Cold work steel with very good toughness, dimensionally stable, impact resistant, high hardening capacity. Similar with AISI S1.

Applications:

Typical applications include mandrel bars for drawing steel tubes, swaging, also punching, piercing, trimming dies and shear blades, forming and gripper dies.

Quality Standard:

HEAT TREATMENT:

  • FORGING:Heat the steel carefully to a temperature of 1000-1050°C and forge with light rapid blows. Reheat when temperature falls below 900°C if further work remains to be done. After forging, cool slowly, ideally in a furnace.
  • ANNEALING: Heat the component slowly and uniformly to 800-810°C. Soak thoroughly for two to three hours and cool slowly in the furnace.
  • STRESS RELIEVING: If the machining operations have been severe, we recommend stabilising just before the tool components are finish machined to relieve machining strains. Heat slowly to a temparature of 700°C, allow to cool in air.
  • HARDENING:Preheat at 650°C followed by rapid increase of temperature to 900-950°C. Quench in oil. Tempering of this grade is always recommended after hardening.
  • TEMPERING: Heat slowly to the required tempering temperature, soak thoroughly for two hours per 25mm section and allow to cool in air. For hot work applications, a minimum tempering temperature of 550°C should be used.
