Summary

The special surface treatment of the ejector pins and similar tool elements is advantageously suitable in diecasting dies. The tools undergo a bath nitriding-treatment. In this way, pins obtain a spring hardened core with progressive reinforced zone running to the outside finally having a surface hardness of approx. 950 HV-0,3. Therefore the high degree of abrasion- and wear resistance influences the service life in a very positive way.
