Erasteel products are found in many different applications

The grades and products of Erasteel are used in a wide range of tooling and component applications where high wear resistance and high strength are required:

  • Cutting tools such as drills, taps, reamers, milling cutters
     
  • Gear cutting tools: hobs, shaper cutters, shaving cutters
     
  • Broaches
     
  • Saws: bandsaws, hand hack saws, sabre saws, jigsaws, power hack saws
     
  • Knives for metal, wood, paper, plastics and textile cutting
     
  • Cold work tooling: punches and dies for sheet forming, blanking, fine-blanking, powder compaction, tube drawing, etc.
     
  • Plastics processing: screws, barrels, gear pumps for extrusion and injection
     
  • Automotive components: injection systems, vane pumps, etc.

In all tooling and component applications, Erasteel recommends ASP® steels produced by powder metallurgy. In many cases, the ASP® range bridges the gap between HSS and cemented carbides.

Erasteel powders are also suitable for:

  • Near-net-shape or bimetal parts produced by hot isostatic pressing (HIP NNS)
     
  • Thermal spraying technologies, such as PTA
     
  • Other innovative powder compaction processes, such as rapid prototyping, laser melting, powder pressing and forging, extrusion etc.
