Toolox, a Swedish steel developed for world-class performance

”Once Toolox®, always Toolox®”. It’s our way of summarizing the performance of this premium engineering and tool steel. Toolox® outperforms a wide range of conventional steels for machining and tooling. Toolox® is developed to save time when manufacturing all kinds of high-quality steel components, as well as ensuring that the final products deliver maximum performance, productivity and service life.

Machine parts made of Toolox

One steel – two winners

When you make it

Toolox® makes workshops winners in terms of short lead times and high precision of the final machine parts, molds, dies and other steel components.

When you use it

Toolox® makes end users winners since their machine components and tools work harder and last longer.

”To me “Once Toolox®, always Toolox®” is a good description of the material. If you have an application where Toolox® is the solution for today, it will be also the solution tomorrow, because you can trust the Toolox® quality and metallurgy.”

Peter Recknagel, Gebrüder Recknagel Präzisionsstahl GmbH

”We switched from 1.2379 steel with 56 HRC to Toolox® 44. Instead of cracking after 5,000 pieces the work piece in Toolox® 44 shows no wear after more than 40,000 pieces.”
