The Spray Form process for making premium Particle Metallurgy (PM) tool steel is not just a mere advancement; it is an evolution in the production process. By consolidating the production process from five steps to just one, this technique offers unprecedented efficiency and effectiveness.
One of the key advantages of the Spray Form process is its ability to greatly reduce the energy consumed during production. This not only makes it an environmentally friendly option but also contributes to its cost-effectiveness. Manufacturers across North America now have the opportunity to upgrade their tooling, thanks to the affordability of Spray Form tool steel.
When compared to the traditional cold work tool steel D2, Spray Form PSB27 tool steel has up to three times the wear resistance and higher toughness. This means that not only will the tooling last longer but will produce a higher quantity of parts. The applications for Spray Form PSB27 in the manufacturing industry are vast and diverse. Its lower cost and premium physical characteristics make it the ideal choice for upgrading tooling applications that previously couldn't justify the higher cost of PM tooling.
Upgrading to this advanced tool steel makes fiscal sense, as the increased number of parts that can be manufactured using the same tool far outweighs the additional tooling cost. This cost-benefit analysis can be applied to many applications.
To illustrate the remarkable benefits of Spray Form tool steel, let's consider a case study involving a Rotary Cutting Die. When compared to an identical cutting die made from D2, a cutting die made from PSB27 exhibited a tooling life that was five times longer. This exceptional durability not only saves manufacturers money but also enhances overall productivity.
- PSB27 is available in the following sizes:
- Round bars from 0.75"Dia. thru 12" Dia.
- Flat plates in thicknesses from 0.082" sheet up to 6.062" thick plate.

The Spray Form process is a game-changer in the world of tool steel production. Its ability to consolidate steps, reduce energy consumption, and offer superior wear resistance and toughness make it an attractive option for manufacturers across North America. With Spray Form PSB27, upgrading your tooling has never been more practical or cost-effective. Experience the difference for yourself and unlock the potential of your manufacturing applications.
