Hot Work Steel Concept for Structural Die Casting
The exhibitor presentation by Schmiedewerke Gröditz shows a hot work steel concept for structural die casting.
The process environment of high pressure die casting is already very challenging for any kind of hot work tool steel. High process temperatures, frequent temperature changes, high casting pressures and casting velocities strain hot work tool steels to their limits. Today, automotive components made by high pressure die casting have become even larger and more complex to enable weight savings for conventional and electric vehicles as well. Achieving a sufficient die lifetime for large and complex structural parts have become even more difficult and can only be reached using high quality hot work tool steels with highest levels of toughness, hot strength and wear resistance. We would like to introduce our concepts of hot working tool steels designed for structural die casting parts to enable you to make your processes more efficient and profitable.
