Mold steel difference of H13, NAK80, 718 & P20
Mold steel difference of H13, NAK80, 718 & P20Mold steel quality decides the mold performance and the mold life time , so, it is very important to select the correct mold steel for your project application. Intertech will help you to select the suitable mold steel with our thirty years experience and knowledge.
Furthermore, the origin of the mold steel made decides the quality of the steel,
all our mold steels are imported from German and Japan with formal quality certificate which 100% ensures your mold steel performance and life time.
This is a harden steel, requires to make the heat treatment, normally the hardness is with 48-52HRC. Mold life can be up to 800000~1 million shots.
This is a pre-harden steel, hardness is with 37-40HRC, mold life can be up to 400000~500000 shots
This is a pre-harden steel, hardness is with 30-33HRC, mold life can be up to 300000~400000 shots
This is a pre-harden steel, hardness is with 28-32HRC, mold life can be up to 200000~300000 shots
From above steels, H13 is the best steel, after that, it is NAK80, 718, P20.
In addition, many customers likes to use Starvax 420 steel, this normally can
ensure the cycle time more than one million shots.
For the price level, above steel grade are in difference level, Starvax 420 is
The most expensive one, H13 is the second expensive one, after that, it is
NAK80, 718 & P20.
Good quality (steady, averaged even in every section of the entire steel) requires certain machining process hours to ensure the quality level. Comparing with those lousy low quality and cheap price steels, all Intertech’s imports German and Japan mold steels will take longer time in machining house (because its steady, averaged even in every section of the steel) and consumed more cutters during the machining process, but this will bring you a fruitful outcome for good steel performance, quality and lifetime value.
