Tool Steel Welding

Tool steel welding is often needed for die-casting dies, large forging dies, plastic molding, car body dies and blanking tools – in cases such as a repair or an engineering change, where welding can be done more cost effectively than producing new tooling.

Welding of tooling may be required for any of the following:

  • Refurbishment and repair of cracked or worn tooling
  • Restoration of chipped or worn cutting edges
  • Adjustment of machining errors in tool making
  • Design changes

Our tool steel welding facility offers:

  • Weld joint preparation
  • Pre-heating & post-heating capabilities
  • Annealing capabilities
  • Magnetic particle inspection
