Tool Steel Investment Casting

Tool Steel Casting Alloys

Tool steels consist of carbon and alloy steels typically used for investment casting tools. These alloys are known for their high hardness, wear-resistance and abrasion resistance. But they are not corrosion-resistant. Tool steels include several different groups of alloys. Each group provides different levels of strength, surface hardness, toughness, working temperature, and shock resistance.

JC Casting is a tool steel investment casting factory in China. The casting process allows for tight tolerances, intricate coring, and provides a smooth surface finish (125 RMS). It is an ideal material for complex designs. And it is capable of producing short runs through rapid prototyping.
Our foundry has automatic lines for ferrous and non-ferrous alloys casting production. Our capabilities include pouring investment cast parts up to 500*600 mm. and weighing up to 300 kgs.

Tool Steel Alloys Grade

Tool Steel Alloys GradeFeaturesgrade tool steels for investment casting
A-GradeAir hardening, all-purpose tool steel with increased chromium content. Provides good machinability, toughness, and wear resistanceA-2
D-GradeAir-hardening tool steel with a high chromium and carbon content for abrasion resistance. These tool steel alloys retain their hardness at high temperatures and are ideal for investment casting cutting tools and die.D-2
H-GradeHot-working tool steel with low carbon content and a chromium base. Provides hardness, abrasion resistance and ability to withstand high-pressure applicationsH-13
S-GradeHave a low carbon content and resist shock at low and high temperatures. S-grade tool steels also have high impact resistance but do not provide as much abrasion resistance as other grades. S-1

How to Select a Tool Steel for Your Investment Casting Project

Material choosing is the primary element for your investment casting project. Casting Material selection is especially important for tools and dies, which must withstand high volumes of cutting, coining, molding, pressing and extruding. Properties to consider when deciding on a tool steel alloy for precision investment casting include:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Shock resistance
  • Hardness
  • Working temperature
  • Weldability
