The revision of this authoritative work contains a significant amount of new information from the past two decades presented in an entirely new outline, making this a "must have" reference for engineers involved in tool-steel production, as well as in the selection and use of tool steels in metalworking and other materials manufacturing industries.


The chapter on tool-steel manufacturing includes new production processes, such as electroslag refining, vacuum are remelting, spray deposition processes (Osprey and centrifugal spray), and powder metal processing. The seven chapters covering tool-steel types in the 4th Edition have been expanded to 11 chapters covering nine main groups of tool steels as well as other types of ultrahigh strength steels sometimes used for tooling. Each chapter discusses in detail processing, composition, and applications specific to the particular group. In addition, two chapters have been added covering surface modification and trouble production and performance problems.
