Material Tool Steel

Material tool steel specifications are commonly quoted throughout Market. The Werkstoff (Material) number is a tool steel specification commonly made up of five digits with a decimal point after the first digit (example 1.2379). Material Numbers were designated by “Deutsches Institut für Normung” (German Institute for Standardisation) a no-profit organization responsible for developing DIN standards.

This tool steel numbering system was introduced to be more compatible with computerisation, but limited information on the tool steel specification can be established from the Werkstoff grade.
