Tool steel is a type of steel specially manufactured to be used in cutting and measuring tools. This steel has various characteristics and properties that make it ideal for these uses, such as:
There are several different types of tool steel, each with specific characteristics and particular purposes, such as:
In terms of its manufacture, tool steel is manufactured through a process known as steeling. This process involves heating the steel to high temperatures and then rapidly cooling it to harden it. Chemical elements such as cobalt or molybdenum are often added to improve the properties of the steel.
After fabrication, tool steel is tempered, which is the process of heating and cooling the steel to improve its hardness and strength. It is then sharpened and given a final shape for use.
