NEMAK: great potential for new hot-working steel by Deutsche Edelstahlwerke

Leading long-steel producer Deutsche Edelstahlwerke (DEW), the German subsidiary of SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Group, has once again added to their delivery range. Since March 2015 the new hot-working steel Thermodur® E 40 K Superclean comes in all dimensions, from 800 x 100 to 800 x 400 mm (machining available on request). "The new material immediately attracted a lot of attention because it delays the formation of hot cracks and thereby significantly increases the life of the tool compared to conventional hot-working steel," explains Hans-Georg Maschetzke, Deutsche Edelstahlwerke Sales Manager for tool steel for EU customers.
