M2 ToolSteel

M2 Tool steel is also known as Molybdenum-type high-speed steel.

It has a good balance of toughness, excellent wear resistance, and red hardness. Moreover, M2 tool steel is used for a variety of general-purpose applications. This grade is frequently used in cold-work punches and dies and high-speed and light-cutting applications, among other things.

For its superior properties such as bending strength, toughness, and thermoplasticity—all of which are 50% higher than T1—M2, high-speed steel is by far the most preferred high-speed steel for replacing T1 in the vast majority of applications.

It has a 50 percent machinability rating compared to the W group, which is generally considered relatively easy to machine.

Applications

Drills, rolls, dies, cutters, mandrels reamers, knives, taps, pins, and rolling racks are some of the many applications of M2 toolSteel.
