The development of mankind is inextricably linked to the use of tools. Where stone, bone and wood tools were initially used, nowadays tool steels in complex machines meet the high requirements of industrial production. They are alloyed differently with regard to the load-bearing capacity of specific applications and reach their demanding properties only with an elaborate heat treatment. Its requirements contain a variety of parameters like toughness, wear resistance, compressive strength and heat resistance.
In many cases,the weight of tool steel in a machine is rather small compared to the weight of the whole machine. However, the right tool selection is usually decisive for the economy of the whole machine or production line. We supply cold working-, hot working- and plastic moulding steel in round, flat and square bars in the usual high BGH quality.
Our application-oriented research and development ensures continuous improvement of our tool steels and finds tailor-made solutions for you.
Whether for case hardening, tempering or nitriding steels - Engineering steel from BGH is used wherever the highest demands are required on material and service.
Our continously optimized processes and state-of-the-art production and testing facilities guarantee reproducibly high quality at economical prices. Our gear steels, specially designed for the needs of the wind power industry, are just one example of the application of BGH engineering steel.
Electro-Slag-Remelting (ESR), Pressurized Electro-Slag-Remelting (PESR) and VAR remelting units are available for highest purity requirements. Additionally, we can offer our engineering steel as wire, rod or open-die forgings in our complete size range.
