Grade Introduction:

1.2714 is a German Hot work alloy steel material grade.it is shock-resisting steel. it belongs to DIN 17350 standard. Digital Grade material number W-Nr 1.2714, Metal Steel grade 56NiCrMoV7. It is a die steel, use in extrusion molds, Hot Cast molds. like aluminum production, Aluminum cast mold. Our Tool Steel material 100 % ultrasonic tested at a good price. Small size steel products make by hot rolled, large size steel products make by forging.

Grade Application:

1.2714 cold working tool steel is for general-purpose tools and dies where greater toughness is required, but with some sacrifice of abrasion resistance.
