Improving tooling life & performance

 
Our innovative collection of MIL60 steels increase performance and output across an extensive range of cold forming applications 
When upgrading to MIL60, customers will experience greater output and reduced tooling costs.
Our MIL60 range is durable and wear-resistant making it suitable for a variety cold forming tooling, including die inserts, die cases, die rings, die sleeves, heading punches, forming punches, and pins.

SPECIALIST STEEL

HRC 54-60

Die inserts & sleeves

MIL60R is particularly effective where toughness is required. Even with increased hardness, MIL60R provides superior impact resistance, outperforming other tool steels.

M2, M35

HRC 58-64

Heading & forming punches, KO pins

The perfect steel for general cold forming and punching.

M42

HRC 64-68

Extrusion, piercing & marking

High-strength steel with greater wear resistance.

Objective

To overcome deformation and cracking to the embossed text to ultimately increase output

 
Extend tooling life by up to 10x with our PVD Coatings
Our Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) coatings extend the life of tooling by reducing wear resistance and friction whilst establishing a thermal barrier to reduce oxidation and heat fatigue.
PVD coatings are metal compounds with high-hardness and wear-resistance and the optimal coating depends on many factors of process, including the forged material, lubricant, working temperature, and machine speed.

Our Physical Vapour Deposition process is based on vaporizing the compound so that it can be deposited consistently and uniformly as a thin layer on the tooling.
Our coatings are extremely tough and provide a high level of protection far beyond that of the foundation steel they are applied to.

Titanium Nitride

(TiN)

General purpose coating for cutting, forming, and moulding.

Titanium Carbon Nitride

(TiCN)

Enhanced hardness and wear resistance over TiN.

Excellent for metal forming (carbon steel).

Chromium Nitride

(CrN)

Excellent adhesion, high toughness, good corrosion resistance.

Suitable for forming non-ferrous metal such as aluminium and copper.

Aluminium

Titanium Nitride

(AITiN)

I’m a paragraph. Double click me or click Edit Text, it's easy.

Extreme wear resistance at high temperature.

Suitable for piercing, blanking, trimming, extrusion, and forming high strength materials.

Aluminium Chromium Nitride

(AICrN)

High oxidation resistance and hot hardness for high temperature wear resistance.

Perfect for forming stainless steel.

Our approach has defined us as leaders in manufacturing customer-led design of cold-forming tools for fasteners in automotive and construction markets worldwide.
