ABRAMS Premium Precision Plates

Premium P-Plates from Tool Steel - Precision Plates

P-Plates made from 1.1730 (AISI 1045) or 1.2312 (AISI P20+S) are Standardised Steel Plates. These standardised P-Plates can be used in a wide variety of applications. For example for mould structures and machine parts to buildings construction.

To guarantee low distortion during further processing the Premium Precision Plates, the primary material is normalised / tempered. Furthermore the thickness of the undrilled Standardised P-Plates is precision ground and the thickness and width are milled to tight toleranzes. 

Tolerances

Premium P-Plates [PPP]
For example.: 296,0 x 346,0 x 17,0 mm

W finely milled, Tol. +0,15 / -0 mm
L finely milled, Tol. +0,15 / -0 mm
T ground, Tol. +0,35 / +0,20 mm

Properties of Premium P-Plates

Standardised P-Plates have high wear resistance, toughness and good machinability. Due to its high dimensional accuracy and surface quality, these steel plates are perfectly suited for the production of moulded plates.

Technical Properties of 1.1730 (AISI 1045) P-Plates

The 1.1730 (AISI 1045) Premium P-Plates are unalloyed and normalised, have excellent machinabilty and can be used for unhardened components, e.g. fixture construction. Due to its carbon content of 0.45% the standardised plates can be hardened but with a low depth of hardening. These precision plates made from cold work steel can be used as shallow depth case-hardener with a hard surface and tough core.

Technical Properties of 1.2312 (AISI P20+S) P-Plates

The 1.2312 (AISI P20+S) P-Plate is a tempered, cold work plastic mould steel with added sulphur which gives this Premium P-Plate its good machinability. The 1.2312 (AISI P20+S) Plates are less polishable and more difficult to edge, due to the added sulphur.

The high through-hardenability of the 1.2312 (AISI P20+S) enables its uniform component strength. There is no distortion as the Presision-Plates do not need to be further heat treated.
