Cold Work Premium Tool Steel Now Available



Diehl Tool Steel is now offering Hitachi Metals America's SLD-i cold work premium tool steel, an advanced tool steel grade used in various blanking and forming application where AHSS parts are processed.

"SLD-i is produced using the same heat treatment as D2 but exhibits better wear and toughness when used for forming and trim sections," said a company spokesperson. "It also shows better wear than 8% Cr steels for specific draw sections of large automotive dies.

"Because of the unique manufacturing process, Hitachi SLD-i also minimizes heat treat deformation, thereby lowering tooling costs. Further comparison between Hitachi SLD-i and D2 reveals that Hitachi SLD-i requires less machining after heat treatment and a decreased amount of shape adjustment than D2. In specific application areas, customers have experienced a dramatic improvement over conventionally applied D2."

SLD-i is now available in flat cross-sections up to 5" thick and is designed to provide an effective combination of wear resistance and toughness, tool performance and price. Diehl can machine Hitachi SLD-i tool steel to toolmaker tolerances using its Accu-Square process.
