Engineering Solutions

Improve performance with High Performance Steel

When conventional engineering materials do not give you the performance you want, tool steel can be the answer. If you are designing something subject to heavy loads, heavy wear, corrosion or high temperatures, High Performance Steel could be the answer you are looking for. Our HPS-materials offer superior property combinations to help you achieve a high performance solution.

Choosing the right material is an important decision to make.  For the component user, it could mean the difference between success and failure.  For the component manufacturer, it is a matter of overall economy, operational stability and a competitive edge.

Uddeholm offers not only HPS-materials but also knowledge and experience to help you make the right decisions.  Backed by extensive research and development facilities, our experts will gladly guide you in the selection, heat treatment, machining and welding of HPS-materials.

Tooling Solutions

Uddeholm offer solutions to virtually all industries and applications. We offer tooling materials and procedures to maximise your total tooling economy regardless of whether you are considering quick and short, medium, or very long production series, and regardless of where in the tools chain you are.

On top of that, you get recommendations on how to treat and machine the material so that its potential is fully utilised and the risk of tool failure minimised. The recommendations are flexible to suit your equipment and previous experience with similar materials. Thus, if you have had a specific problem with a certain process in the past, we could help you change the tool material and/or preparation to remedy that particular problem.

We can even undertake most of the services or refer you to qualified and certified partners, to help you ensure a timely and proper tool function.
