Properties Of Free Machining Steels And Applications
As we stated other contents of Mechanical Base, steels are the one of the major material in industry. Also in manufacturing, steels are generally used. These types of steels that are used in manufacturing tooling and processes called as ‘tool steels’. In this article, we will explain, what is tool steel and what are the properties, alloying elements and applications of tool steels in industry.
Tool steels are high alloyed steels to use them in various manufacturing processes such as molding, machining, casting etc. Some of properties that tools steels must have;
These properties can change according to the application that tool steels are used. There are bunch of types of tool steels that are generally represented by a letter in their designation according to the AISI.
