Abstract:Tool surfaces for the forming of shaped steel strips are typically made from cemented carbides. Disadvantages of these tools are that they suffer from roughening of the surfaces and severe wear, which deteriorates the surface quality of the products and restricts the lifetime of the tool. Due to their high hardness and better high-temperature properties, improvements of tool behaviour can be expected by the use of silicon nitride.
