High speed steel

High speed steel is a group of alloyed tool steels with a carbon content of up to 2.06% and a proportion of alloying elements (tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, cobalt, nickel and titanium) of up to 30%. This steel is also known under HSS (according to EN ISO 4957 HS).

High speed steel - characteristics:

  • great hardness
  • wear resistance
  • eat resistance up to 600°C
  • tempering resistance
  • corrosion resistance


High speed steels are mainly used in machining in machine tools. Examples of these tools are drills, turning tools, milling cutters, thread cutting tools, saw blades and much more.
