Cold working die steel with high hardness and toughness
QCM Series contributes to “total cost reduction” of dies.
Cold-work dies steel that achieves both high strength and toughness.
QCM surpasses conventional steel, SKD11, in hardness, toughness, fatigue strength, and wear resistance by controlling the microstructure.
QCM Series contributes to increased productivity and manufacturing cost reduction due to an improved dies service life.
Owing its properties of high hardness and toughness, QCM Series can be applied to dies of various use conditions.
- For improvement of service life of various tools for cold working.
- For dies material used under severe conditions such as cold forging.
- For substitution for SKH51 or matrix high-speed steel.
