Setting standards is important in the tooling industry and Bohler-Uddeholm Corporation (Elgin, IL) is known for delivering first-class tooling materials. Their Uddeholm Ramax LH steel grade is no exception. It is a top-level tool steel for mold bases, with excellent machinability offered from a complete stock program. Uddeholm Ramax LH also exhibits uniform hardness in all dimensions combined with very good stability. This stainless steel grade will give producers of mold bases, as well as toolmakers around the world, the benefit of reduced tooling costs. In addition, it prevents corrosion that can clog water cooling channels, leading to a gradual increase in cycle time. Time is always crucial when it comes to maintaining high productivity. By using this material you will benefit from an optimized alloying content, leading to greatly improved machinability. This means a decrease in production time; therefore reducing leadtime and making it easier to meet your customer’s demands. Uddeholm Ramax LH is a part of Uddeholm Stainless Concept, a group of metallurgically optimized steel grades. These grades have been specially developed and continually improved to meet the demands of today’s fast-changing plastic molding industry. With the addition of Uddeholm Ramax LH, we can now deliver material for almost every single component in a mold.
