You have a specific requirement? Take a look at our product range:
Thanks to our range of products available in all delivery formats, our integrated processing services and our extensive network of subcontractors, we promise to meet your requirements whatever your applications.
You make tools for the plastics processing, glass or foundry industries?
Due to their chemical compositions, our hot-work steels (such as Foral 390 ESR) and stainless steels for tools are specifically designed for use at high temperatures. They ensure the durability of your forging and punching dies as well as your die-casting or glassmaking moulds.
You are cutters/moulders and you make cutting tools, follow-on tools, punches/moulds, blades, grinding blades and/or cold-forming blades?
Our ‘Ferritan’ steels produced using powder metallurgy, cold-work steels, high-speed steels and ready-to-use pre-treated steels offer a wide range of options that we can explore together according to your needs: resilience, wear-resistance, abrasion-resistance, compression-resistance, etc.
We can provide you with suitable solutions with the appropriate heat treatment.
You make cutting tools?
Our high-alloy high-speed steels and our steels produced using powder metallurgy ensure good machinability and durability properties for your tools (milling tools, cold-forming tools, pins, taps, etc.).
You make cavities, die-holders and metal parts for moulds?
You make individual or mass-produced parts? Our steels for moulds (ready to use or to treat) are your number one choice! Our experts can recommend the most suitable heat treatment depending on your requirements (cavity use, quantities and production rates).
Thanks to our wide range of stainless steels for tools, boasting excellent anti-corrosion properties, (ready to use or to treat) you can use your tools in optimised conditions when exposed to corrosive fumes, extremely abrasive materials or high levels of humidity.
All of our pre-treated steels supplied with a high hardness grade and annealed after tempering can naturally be coated or surface-treated to extend the service life of your tools.
Owing to our ongoing developments and numerous partnerships, we offer a wide range of grades to suit all requirements in the event of modifications as well as applications combining moulds and mechanics: MP 33 – SP 300, ADS 38, Toolox 33, Toolox 40 and Toolox 44. These steels have a 15% higher yield strength and a better resistance than conventional toolmaking materials.
