Sheffield Gauge Plate supplies high-speed steels across the UK and worldwide.
What is High-Speed Steel?
High-speed steels (HSS) are a type of tool steel with increased wearability and hardness. It is a steel alloy composed of steel substrate and metal carbide that work together to improve the hardness and wearability of the material.
High-speed steels are most commonly used in cutting tools; their composition makes them ideal for working in high temperatures and high speeds. They cut much faster than high carbon steels, hence the name high-speed steel.
Where other steel types will begin to wear or become brittle and break entirely, high-speed steels are ideal for the job. In addition, using high-speed steel in your industry will help reduce the likelihood of downtime needed to fix issues and replace or sharpen machinery parts.
Our high-speed steel supplies are held in the tungsten molybdenum type.
Cobalt molybdenum high-speed steel grades are also available.
