Case Study: Tools for pressing
parts for heat exchangers
Starting situation: W.Nr. 1.2344 was used to
manufacture the die of stainless steel for pressing parts for heat exchangers.
After fabricating the die, the steel was cured to the hardness of about 50 HRC.
The end die was prepared using a modular system with many components.
production of the die from Toolox 44 tool steel led to considerable money and time
savings. About 600,000 pieces were produced with an outstanding result.
Case Study:Tools for manufacturing refrigeration
Initial situation: Progressive cold forming tools for the production of cooling
device parts are very demanding to manufacture and are used under difficult
conditions. W. No. 1.2363 was used for production and cured to 60 HRC. Toolox 44 tool steel is
based on the motivation to save time, avoid difficulties in the treatment of
long sections and to make final corrections easier.
Result: The use of Toolox 44 saved over threedays. This is primarily due to the absence of heat treatment.
After the production of 150,000 pieces, the mold had no
visible signs of wear. Control measurements were successful and 1.5 million
pieces were manufactured.
