M35 HIGH-SPEED STEEL

 

 

METHODS OF MAKING TOOLS

M35 can be worked in the same way as other high-speed steels by plastic forming, machining, grinding, electrical discharge machining, welding and polishing.  M35 is amenable to cold forming.
In grinding, local heating of the surface, which might alter the temper, must be avoided.  Grinding wheel makers can furnish advice on the choice of grinding wheels.  Machining is carried out using carbide or high-speed steel tools.

 

BEND STRENGTH

The bend strength is a measure of the toughness of the material.  It will be seen from the diagram that toughness and hardness can be controlled by varying the hardening temperature.
