Improved technical properties The new special grade ES Multiform SL developed by EschmannStahl sets new standards both for tool and mould making as well as for engineering applications.
ES Multiform SL is supplied in the Q + T condition, 280–325 HB (950–1100 N/mm²). Due to its special chemical composition, this new tool steel, available in thicknesses up to 600 mm, features uniform hardness levels through the entire crosscut section.
Can be used in the as-delivered state
Consistent technical properties
Uniform hardness to the core up to a thickness of 600 mm
Significantly higher toughness
Ideally suited for graining
Good polishing properties
ES Multiform SL can be nitrided, chromiumplated, laser hardened and welded
Thickness up to 605 mm in stock
Thanks to its unique manufacturing process, the steel exhibits a high yield point as well as high toughness across the entire cross-sectional area. This makes ES Multiform SL an excellent choice for general tool and mould-making applications. It is also ideally suited for moulds with thin-walled contours and critical cooling hole patterns. The outstanding features of ES Multiform SL are its excellent polishing properties and its suitability for graining.
This is also underlined by a documented graining test with common interior textures used by German car manufacturers. This test certifies that this material is absolutely suitable for graining.
Last but not least, the steel offers exceptional repair welding characteristics due to machining properties which are comparable to the steel grades 1.2311, ES LB 100 and 1.2738.
In the field of plastic mould steel, EschmannStahl is the leading supplier in Europe. Our EST grade offers particularly high quality and reliability in further processing and subsequent production. Even for tooling for the production of items such as lorry dashboards, bumper moulds, large screen televisions right up to refuse containers, EschmannStahl can supply all commercially-available plastic mould steels ex-stock.
In addition to the standard grades, we also offer a range of high-performance custom grades whose outstanding material characteristics open up new possibilities for you in terms of functionality and cost-effectiveness. Our corrosion-resistant ES Antikor SL tool steel is ideally suited for use in processing abrasive plastics or for applications involving extremely corrosive media. The fact that this steel grade also offers unprecedented machining properties for this class of steel is simple the icing on the cake. Our “ES Aktuell 1200” custom grade is the perfect choice for particularly large shapes that require uniform hardness all the way to the core.
The desire to be better than the rest – that’s what sets a company apart. Here at EschmannStahl, a highly focussed quality management system guarantees our success.
Even in the run-up to a project, the laboratory at the Reichshof-Wehnrath facility delivers the highest quality standards thanks to extensive material testing, exhaustive test procedures backed up by ongoing development of materials. This ensures the functional reliability of all procedures of relevance to the operating process – something that is also permanently maintained in the area of application by a professional team of consultants.
A new hardness testing facility for HB and HRC provides for seamless monitoring of the particular work item. The 3-coordinate measuring machine allows for precise measurement of the hardened work item at the plant and eliminates the need for goods inwards inspections by the customer.
