Tool steel is appropriate for producing a variety of machinery parts, such as reamers, bits, and cutters, because to its important characteristics, including resistance to abrasion, hardness, and its capacity to preserve shape at excessive temperatures. Tool steel has essential features such as resistance to abrasion and capacity to maintain shape at high temperatures.


Tool steel has massive demand in automotive and aerospace industry as its used for making tools like machine dies or hand tools. The product is mostly used for plastic extrusion, forging, stamping, cutting, and slitting. As a result, the product is essential in shaping materials like plastics and other metal sheets into the appropriate components required by the end-use industries.


Tool steel market is currently expanding due to increased demand for cutting tools for manufacturing applications such as injection molding, die casting, and forging. Growing consumer demand for cutting tools made of carbide may impede the market's expansion for tool steel. However, the product is extremely well-suited for intermittent cutting operations and offers cost advantages over its competitors.
