Tool Steel Services
Precision Saw Cutting
With our four in-house, state-of-the-art Vertical Plate Saws and Twelve Horizontal Saws, Diehl Steel is able to process orders to exact customer specifications. We process both large and small cutting requirements. Tolerances as close as +/- .010″ can be held for many cutting applications. Saw cut items ship in 24 to 48 hours.
Centerless Grinding and Hollow Bar
Diehl Steel has always processed custom centerless ground and hollow bar steel products. Non-standard sizes and special tolerances are our specialty. In today’s busy manufacturing environment tool shops and machine shops are routinely challenged with very demanding schedules and lead times. Supplying the customer a more finished product to save them valuable preparation work has become an important aspect of the Diehl Steel total commitment to quality and service. Centerless grinding and hollow bar will give that customer the competitive edge to meet the most demanding schedules.
Hollow bar can be produced to the customers exact size specifications. The required size will be machined with an oversize tolerance to finish to the specified outside diameter (OD) and machined undersize to finish to the specified inside diameter (ID). Material will also be saw-cut oversize to finish to the customer’s exact length/thickness

Diehl Steel READY-BLOCK™ EDM Blanks
READY-BLOCKs™ are tool steel blocks that have been pre-hardened, squared and ground, so they are shipped ready-to-use for EDM. They are available in many popular tool steel grades including in-stock AISI A-2 and D-2 (RC 58-62). Each block is first precision machined to a specific thickness, width and length, within +.010”/.020” tolerance. They are then hardened and tempered to a standard hardness. A starter hole is included at the customer’s request.
READY-BLOCK™ allows toolmakers immediately to begin the wire EDM process, eliminating the need to machine and heat treat raw material.
