Water-hardening tool steels are ast known as group W steels. This group consists of three types, namely, W1 tool steel, W2 tool steel, and W3 tool steel.
ASTM A686 Grade W2-A annealed
The main alloying element found in group W steels is carbon. To increase the wear resistance and hardenability of the W steels, a z686 amount of chromium can be added.
By adding vanadium, the grain size is maintained, which enhances the toughness of the steels. The group W steels have low resistance to softening at high temperatures and are inexpensive.
ASTM A W1 Tool Steel Drill Rod
The W1 tool steel is one of the most commonly available water hardening tool steel grades and can be easily hardened by heating and quenching in water. However, this alloy does undergo some amount of distortion during quenching.
Back to Top Applications The W1 tool steel is mainly used for cold heading, hand-operated metal cutting tools, reamers and embossing taps. It is also used for cutlery. W1 tool steel can be easily formed using conventional methods.
ASTM A() – Standard Specification for Tool Steel, Carbon
W1 tool steel are weldable using all the standard methods. W1 tool steel can be hot-worked.
W1 tool steel in the annealed condition have very good ductility and can be easily cold worked using conventional methods. The steels should be maintained at the same temperature for 10 to 30 minutes and finally water or brine quenched.
Soak for two hours per inch of thickness at heat. Soak, slow cool furnace cool if possible to room temperature. Founded inFuShun covers an area of square meters, annual sales volume of tons.
