ExELL™ FORGEDIEDownload ExELL™ FORGEDIE Spec sheet
ExELL™ ForgeDie is a chromium-nickel-molybdenum alloy hot-work steel which has been developed especially for forging die block applications. ExELL™ ForgeDie is characterized by:
- Good through hardening characteristics resulting in good hardness distribution even in very large sections
- Excellent machinability
- Good hot strength and hot hardness
- Easy repair welding
ExELL™ ForgeDie is manufactured in a fully integrated manufacturing facility for specialty tool steels. The facilities are state-of-the-art beginning with advanced ASEA-SKF steel making capabilities that include an ultra high power electric arc furnace with subsequent/multiple ladle refining, and vacuum degassing for the most complete and modern ladle metallurgy technology.
