High Speed Tool Steels

Extensive Range - Expert Advice

High Speed Steel (or HSS) is frequently used in the manufacture of tools
such a drill bits, saw blades, milling cutters, gear cutters and various
other cutting tools which need to operate at high speeds.

Specifically manufactured to withstand the increases in temperature which
fast operations generate without losing its temper, High Speed Steel can
cut faster than high carbon steel, hence its name.

AKM Steels supplies HSS of the finest quality which can be used with
absolute confidence in the manufacture of a wide range of tools.
