|Title:||METHOD FOR PRODUCING HARDENED STEEL COMPONENTS|
The invention relates to a method for producing a hardened steel sheet, in particular a steel sheet coated with a metal anticorrosive layer, wherein the steel sheet is first heated to an austenitizing temperature and the austenite conversion is at least partially performed and then the steel sheet is pre-cooled to a temperature that lies above the temperature of the conversion of the austenite into other phases and then is transferred into a press hardening tool and, in the press hardening tool, is shaped and quenched for the purpose of hardening, wherein the pre-cooling is performed in a separate tool, wherein the gap between the tool halves (2, 3) in the closed state is higher than the blank to be cooled.
