Uddeholm Vancron 40 is a unique PM tool steel that offers an excellent combination of galling resistance, adhesive wear resistance and low friction. This means that it is very suitable for coping with problems that might occur in powder compacting, cold extrusion, blanking and forming processes. Actual customer trials have proven the great potential of Uddeholm Vancron 40. A tool manufactured in Uddeholm Vancron 40 keeps running long after its competitors have given in, with the same high quality from the fi rst part produced to the last. The fact is that after 16 million parts produced the tool was still running while the second best gave up just before two million. This means that Uddeholm Vancron 40 gives you more advantages than coated cold work tool steel - without taking the time and cost of surface-coating the tool. That makes Uddeholm Vancron 40 a winner, every time. - www.uddeholm.com
