Vanadis tool steels which are a trademark of the Uddeholm AB Company are high vanadium content (along with chromium and molybdenum) steels with unique mechanical properties such as very high wear resistance along with a good machinability, dimensional stability and grind ability. They are widely used in blanking operations, stamping, and deep drawing, cutting and slitting blades. Microstructural features of Vanadis steels are directly depended upon the distribution of the carbide grains. Based upon the carbon and vanadium contents of the Vanadis tool steels, wear test results and micro hardness values are correlated with the resulting microstructural features.
