TOOL STEELS

Tool steel round bar supplier represent the variety of hard and abrasion-resistant steels that are perfect for making tools.

Featured Tool Steels

Here at O’Hare Precision Metals, we maintain our inventory of tool steels round bar stock, and cold finished steel bar stocks that are suited for machining and cutting metals like carbon steel, alloy steel, aluminum, nickel alloys, and magnesium.

They have their main characteristics that are harder compared to the material that is machined and cut. Thus, making the tool steel’s cold finished bar a lot more capable of handling heat-treated conditions.

As an excellent tool steel round bar supplier, our expansion of metal and steel production is used in multiple applications like seamless rolled rings, shafts, blocks, discs & hubs, flanges, and other forgings that can be machined to desired finishes. 

Our centerless ground bar and precision grinding services are able to perform custom manufacturing of tool steel forgings in order to meet the following international standards in steel working (e.g. AMS, ASTM, ASME, NACE, and other corporate specifications) which includes the custom lengths as well as odd sizes.

Our unique procedures and techniques are intended for both standard and non-standard specifications to meet and exceed the varying needs of the customer-specified applications. Titanium can be forged into parts and components like bars, disks, blocks, shafts, flanges, seamless rolled rings, hubs, rings, and seamless contoured rolled rings.

O’Hare Precision Metals sees to it that we can produce a multitude of tool steel materials in all types and groups such as oil hardening, air hardening, shock resisting, water hardening, hot working, cold working, mold steels, high speed, and special-purpose tool steels.

TOOL STEEL BARS

As a precision grinding services provider and a known tool steel round bar supplier, we extend our availabilities to produce only the best tool steel round bar stock that is well-suited for cutting, shaping and extruding operations.

Tool Steel Bars

O’Hare Precision Metals double its techniques in producing wide variations of abrasion-resistant and highly hard tool steel bars. We have a vast range of tool steel bars that are used for general purposes.

Our tool steel bars have outstanding toughness, compressive strength, wear resistance, and tamper resistance. Their outstanding machining characteristics have faster speeds and feed for reducing yield improved surface finish and machining cost.

 

Tool steel products respond best into heat-treated conditions, allowing varied hardness for meeting specific uses and applications.

Our tool steel grades are assessed to determine which treatment conditions and hardening finishes are appropriate for their intended applications and uses.

Listed below are a few examples of the types of applications that make tool steel an enticing investment:

  • Shear blades
  • Punches & dies
  • Shredder knives
  • Cold heading dies
  • Draw & form dies
  • Thread & form rolls
  • Mill rolls & slitters

TOOL STEEL GRADES

Our tool steel grades are evaluated to identify the series of treated conditions and hardening finishes to fit in their designated applications and uses.

Tool Steel Grades

Tool steels are also machined and forged in a series of conditions depending on the chemical and mechanical properties that each tool steel grade has.

Tool steel grades may differ in strength, toughness, hardness, and resisting properties. Thus, these common distinctions among tool steel grades result in varying and multiple uses and applications that can be initiated with tool steels.

Cold finished bar tool steels are actually a variation of alloy and carbon steels that are perfect to be made into tools. The suitability of tool steels to multiple applications is due to their resistance to deformation and abrasion, their distinctive hardness, and their ability for holding cutting edges at high levels of temperatures. Thus, tool steels are most commonly used in shaping and cutting other materials.

Tool steel are also classified in different groups that differ in the way they are treated and machined to produce the desirable steel product.

Below are the defining properties of tool steel grades that makes this metal so unique:

  • Water-hardening group
  • Cold-work group
  • Shock-resisting group
  • High-speed group
  • Draw & form dies
  • Hot-working group
  • Special purpose group

Though tool steel grades may vary from one another in their featured properties, tool steels are mainly used for extruding, cutting, pressing, and coining of materials in general.

O’Hare Precision Metals double its techniques in producing wide variations of abrasion-resistant and highly hard tool steel bars. We have a vast range of tool steel bars that are used for general purposes.
