Matrix High-Speed Steels

Economical Alternative to Powders

The first Matrix High Speed Steels commercially available in Japan were the YXR series produced by Hitachi Metals, Japan's leading producer (by volume) of High Speed Steels. YXR33 (warm and hot forging tooling), YXR3 (warm and cold forging tooling) and YXR7 (high strength, high hardness cold work tooling) were soon followed by Nachi-Fujikoshi's MDS1, MDS3, MDS7 and Daido Steel's MH85 and MH88. These steels are all single melted, air melted steels. 

Recently, Daido Steel introduced the second generation of Matrix High Speed Steels, dubbed "The Dream Steels". These steels are double (ESR) melted steels for improved toughness, fatigue resistance, strength and cleanliness when compared to the conventionally melted high speed steels.

DRM1 is for warm and hot forging tools, DRM2 is for warm and cold forging tools, and DRM3 is a high hardness (HRC66) high strength tool steel.
