Rapid Tool Question

Dear list,
                     I have a client who is interested in using a Rapid Tool in a press. The tool size will be around 250x250x100mm (10x10x4" for our friends in the US) and the force the tool will be subjected to is 1,400 tons.
Does anyone know if Keltool or Rapidsteel will withstand this sort of load?
Apart from machining, are there any other methods for creating a tool of this size and strength?

Best Regards,
       Kevin Liles
