Carpenter Vega® Alloy Tool Steel (Air-Tough) (AISI A6)
Categories: Metal; Ferrous Metal; Tool Steel

Material Notes: Vega die steel combines the deep hardening and minimum size change characteristics of air-hardening steels with the simplicity of low temperature heat treatment possible in many oil-hardening steels. It is available as a DeCarb-Free product. DCF bars have been cold finished in the mill, eliminating the need for bar bark removal.

Applications: Large blanking dies, Large forming dies, Trimming dies, Notching dies, Feed fingers, Heavy duty punches, Coining dies, Retaining rings, Rim rolls, Master hubs, Shear blades, Precision tools, Spindles, Bending tools, Mandrels, Stripper plates, Plastic molds
