Sleeves Made Using Aluminum Bronze in Place of Tool Steel While tool steel material is
the more traditional material selected when making ejector
sleeves, there are alternatives in the market that can avoid the
shortcomings inherent with tool steel.

bronze alloys strategically eliminates all the heat treatment requirements,
pre and post heat treatment machining, as well as the potential for retained austenite in
tool steel. Also, like hardness bronze or copper alloys can be run in combination
without fear of galling. An aluminum bronze component can be run on a like hardness tool
steel without fear of galling. Nitrides of any sort become unnecessary.
