Tool Steel

Its name derived from its use, tool steel is a carbon-alloy steel that possesses hTool Steelard properties obtained from heat-treated condition. It has a range of 0.5 to 1.5% of carbon and other various components such as molybdenum, tungsten, and chromium.

Because of its carbon component, it is best known for its properties such as hardness, ability to retain its shape in increased temperatures, resistance to abrasion, 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 a necessity for industries manufacturing hand and machine tools.

With such a high demand for the excellent quality of a tool steel round bar stock or two, Forte Precision Metals steps up and 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 that are applied in open die forgings which include discs & hubs, seamless rolled rings, shafts, blocks, flanges as well as other forged shapes that are machined to finished components.
