Chapter 3: Manufacture of Tool Steels
This chapter describes some of the more typical manufacturing practices, along with their benefits and limitations. The manufacturing practices covered include primary melting, electroslag remelting, rolling, hot and cold drawing, and continuous casting. The chapter discusses the advance and application of powder metallurgy. A few of the more recently introduced processes that hold considerable promise for producing tool steels or finished tools at a lower cost or with improved quality also are reviewed.
