The document itself describes in detail the procedures for the above-mentioned areas, however, in order for this document to be practically usable, it is necessary to put into practice a system for quality management of die casting tools, which will bring these processes into practical life. For steel suppliers, for heat treatment plants, for tool shops and for tools users as well. The lectures give some principles that need to be applied so that the outcome of the whole process is a tool with an expected life.
