Selection of steel for stamping tooling:
1) Ordinary stamping die steel: Cr12MoV, SKD11, D2, DC53 although the price is relatively low, but prone to crack.
2)Hot stamping die steel: UNIMAX, 1.8566, DAC55, Dievar, 1.2367, these materials have higher high temperature resistance than other materials, but also have good toughness and strength.
3)High speed stamping (fine stamping die steel) : SKH9, SKH51, M2, M42, ASP23, ASP60, HAP10, HAP40 and so on are better choices.
4)High-end stamping die material: POWDER high speed steel V4, V10, ASP23, ASP60. The disadvantage is that the price is very high. Nothing else.
Commonly used stamping die steel models can be roughly divided into 6 categories:
1) High hardness affordable type;
2) wear resistant type;
3) Good toughness;
4) non-deformation wear-resistant oil steel;
5) High speed steel series;
6) Super wear-resistant tungsten steel series.
