Detail Information
Introduce
  H13 steel is the most popular and most versatile, hot work mould steel, providing a good balance of toughness, heat check resistance, and high temperature strength, in addition to moderate wear resistance. H13 steel can resist softening to 550°C and has good resistance to heat checking. Will Nitride with a case hardness over 1000 V.P.N. Generally supplied annealed to HB 230 max.
Process
  H13 material is softer during hot forging, in order to avoid excessive bending, the production length of ordinary forging machines is not more than 9 meters, in the case of Radial forging equipment, the H13 steel forging rounds bar can reach a maximum of 15 meters.

  In production, H13 ingots need slowly cooled. After ingot release mould, it need take annealed before being forged.

  As delivery for clients, H13 recommends annealing + surface bright( remove the black oxide skin), because the high nickel element is prone to surface cracking.

Applications 

  Typical applications include die casting dies for aluminium, magnesium and zinc, extrusion dies for aluminium and brass, liners, mandrels, pressure pads, followers, bolsters, die cases, die holders and adaptor rings for copper and brass extrusion.H13 is used to produce hot stamping and press forge dies, split hot heading dies, gripper dies, hot punching, piercing and trimming tools. Other applications include plastic moulds, shear blades for hot work and hot swaging dies.

PESR
Pressure electroslag remelting
    Pressure electroslag remelting process is the metallurgic process for the production of steel with high purity and a controlled solidified and respectively faultless structure under pressures of several atmospheres.
  The ESR is the metallurgic process for the production of steel with high purity and a controlled solidified and respectively faultless structure. It is well known as a refining method used mainly in the steel and superalloy industry. The main goal of this process is the inclusion, removal, desulphurization and the adjustment of a uniform microstructure. The fundamentals of this process are described elsewhere and are not further outlined in this paper.
  Many alloys contain elements like aluminum and titanium which, when heated, react with oxygen to form oxides. Oxides are detrimental to premium quality melted alloys. Premium grade alloys, such as those required by the aerospace, energy, medical and automotive industries, can be protected from the atmosphere and residuals by melting inside a vacuum container. This approach gives the metals producer more control over alloy chemistry. The result is a cleaner, more uniform product with the superior properties required for critical service applications.

Ultrafine Treatment

The steel's microstructure is effectively refined by the multiple cycle heating and quenching method. The specific process is to heat the steel from room temperature to a temperature slightly above Ac3, hold it for a short time at a lower austenitizing temperature, then quickly quench and cool it to room temperature, and repeat the process. Each cycle heating will obtain more fine austenitic grains.
