Tool Steel Forging
The open die process enables Anderson Shumaker the flexibility to produce the highest quality tool steel open die forgings and rolled rings for your tooling requirement. Tool steel is traditionally known for its' characteristic of being able to cut other metals due to its distinctive hardness. This particular alloy is commonly used to make tools as forged tool steel is much harder than most metals. Dependent on the carbon composition, tool steel is frequently used for forging dies, machine parts, and a variety of tools including drills, blades, hammers, filers, and chisels. To assure our customers the fastest possible service, we maintain a vast inventory in many tool steel grades.
The open die forging process allows for an array of final products. This flexibility permits us to manufacture a broad range of shapes and sizes, giving you the exact parts your application requires. Whether you need forgings that are a few pounds or weigh more than 150 tons, we can customize the process to meet your needs.
