The evolution of pre-hardened mold steels was presented during the "Global Advances in Pre-hardened Mold Steels" webinar presented by International Mold Steel last month. Executive Vice President and General Manager Tom Schade and National Sales Manager Paul Britton teamed up to compare the differences and advantages of newer pre-hardened materials versus materials from the past, provide insight into how choosing the right material will lower the costs of the tool, review the advantages of using a pre-hard material versus a harden-able material, and share how Europe and Asia have evolved in different directions and how the U.S. started Euro-centric, but has evolved to a globalized view.

Audience members walked away learning five facts about mold steels:

1. Choosing the right steel can save time and money. 

2. New pre-hard materials are easier to machine, weld, and do not require stress relieving.

3. There are better P20 steels on the market today.

4. Why go through the cost of heat treating a steel, when the production quantities justify using a pre-hard?

5. Can you find the weld? Nak 55 and Nak 80 offer people no evidence that the part was welded.
