Tool Steel Bar
Strength and Durability You Can Count On – Tool Steel Bar Stock for Any Job
Tool Steel Bar Stock for Unmatched Performance
This type of steels display excellent wear properties and good toughness which are suited for creating tools.
Because of its carbon component, it is best known for its properties such as hardness, ability to retain its shape in increased temperatures, abrasion resistance, and wear-resistance, allowing it to be widely utilized for cutting and machining of other types of metals like carbon steels, alloy steels, magnesium, and aluminum.
As such, a tool steel round bar stock is necessary for industries manufacturing hand and machine tools.
Quality Tool Steel Bar Stock
With such a high demand for the excellent quality of a tool steel bar stock or two, Forte Precision Metals volunteers its extensive supply and inventory of tool steels to industries that mainly manufacture tool steel products.
Accordingly, a tool steel round bar stock is primarily used in the materials applied in open die forgings, which include discs & hubs, seamless rolled rings, shafts, blocks, flanges, and other forged shapes are machined to finished components.
Forte Precision Metals manufactures tool steels, tool steel forgings, and other related products upon customers’ request. We expertly do so since we are not just an excellent tool steel round bar supplier but one that can also efficiently and well provide precision grinding services.
Applications of Tool Steel Bar Stock
We get to fulfill and meet corporate specifications, through our precision grinding services, including custom lengths, odd sizes, or precision or centerless ground bar forms.
Tool steels can be melted to various alloy specifications. They may undergo multiple processes, including hot and cold-rolling methods, and turn your tool steels into a hot or cold finished bar.
Below are some of the manufactured parts using Tool Steels:
- machine tools
- trimmers & cutting tools
- tooling blocks
- dies and tools used for casting, molding, and stamping
- wear plates
- drill bits and end mills
- mining equipment parts

Why Get Tool Steel Round Stock?
Tool steel is a general classification of steel alloys used to make tools. A tool steel round stock is designed to resist wear, abrasion, and deformation to prolong the life of cutting tools. Tool steels can be classified into three general categories: high carbon tool steel, alloyed tool steel, and stainless tool steel.
Here are the reasons to get tool steel round bar;
Tool steel bar stock has many advantages over other types of materials. It has a higher hardness and wear resistance and is more robust than most other materials. Tool steel also has a higher corrosion resistance than most other types.
Lots of uses
Tool steel round bar has properties different from those of an ordinary round bar. It is more rigid, more wear-resistant, and has better thermal conductivity. Tool steel round bars can be made into various means, such as cutting and machine parts.
