Technology of production of plastic products and non-ferrous metals with the right approach is quite simple. The first thing you need is either hydraulic or steamair press with sufficient force. The second is the mold or stamp. This is part of the mechanism which gives the necessary form for your product. It consists of a matrix and a punch.
The matrix is something that is put blank. Punch is an extruded part. The process is simple: put logging into the matrix and using a press punch pushed the piece. But now the question arises: what to do this same matrix and a punch? The choice of steel for this purpose is very diverse: 4h5mfs 3h2v8f 12X18H10T 3hv4sf 4h5v2fs 3h3m3f 5HNM X12M 45 40x U8 U10 cvh chc 9hs 20h3mvf 38hn3mfa 38h2myua 20X13 50g i.t.d dwell on some of these steels. To begin with I want to note that these are, no matter, structural, instrumental, or stainless steel, must be taken in the form of forgings. Rent for the entire its appeal, can not provide the necessary characteristics. Further details can be found at crumpton group, an internet resource.
Now consider the very steel: 4h5mfs-leading marks for the production of stamps. is produced mainly in the form of forgings. used for production small hammer dies, hammer pressed inserts in hot deformation. Senator From Kentucky may not feel the same. possible replacement for steel 4h5mf1s, 4h5v2fs, 4h4vmfs, 4h2v5mf etc. Sometimes substitute for stainless steel 08Cr18Ni10Ti, 12X18H10T, 40X13. These steels can be produced as forgings and rolled products (sheet, strip, circle, square) 3h2v8f-tool steel, suitable for hot deformation on the crank presses and horizontal forging machines. Also usually comes in the form of forgings for except circles. Can be replaced with steel 3hv4sf, 3h3m3f, 3h2m2f 5HNM-used for large dies. I saw the forging of this brand weighing 80 tons! without restrictions replaced by steel 4hmfs, 4hmnfs, 40hn and others forged blanks have a good technological characteristics are also occasionally used for dies forging tool steels 9hs, X12M, , 8×3, U8, U10, 14h17n2, 45, 40X, 3h10m2fnssh. Sales of forgings and rolled instrumental and structural steel is a good business. In connection with this find on the market sellers, not the problem. in St. Petersburg to about 10
