IBC Metal Group is a worldwide exporter of T1 High Speed Tool Steel, more commonly referred to by its AISI/ASTM designation. This original high-speed tungsten steel distinguished by its grey colour and the incorporation of tungsten carbide, resulting in improved heat resistance, red hardness and wear resistance. In addition to T1, there are other tool steels available on the market ranging from T2 to T15. It is important to note that each grade boasts unique chemical composition and physical, mechanical and thermal characteristics.

Generally, high speed steels used for machining at high speeds. HSS T1 steel materials widely used for: Broaches, Drills, Hobs, Knurling Tools, Lathe Tools, Milling Cutters, Nut Piercers, Planer Tools, Reamers, Shaving Tools, Taps, Thread Cutting Tools.
Relevant Specification of AISI T1 High Speed Tool Steels
AISI T1 Tool Steel and Equivalents’ Chemical Composition
T1 HSS is high speed tool steel containing 18% tungsten, which has good cutting properties and high toughness. With 18% tungsten, it is the most effective high-speed steel grade based on W, with high resistance to wear, red hardness, and toughness. With high tensile strength and a hardness up to 63-66 HRC post heat treatment, tungsten in this tool steel makes it easy to cut them.
High Speed Steel T1 Tool Steel Mechanical Properties
Mechanical Properties of T-1 Steel
Annealing —— 1. Annealing recommended after hot working and before re hardening; 2. Heat the temperature to 850°C at a rate of no more than 220°C per hour; 3. Hold at the temperature for one hour per inch of thickness(at least two hours); 4. Cool slowly in the furnace or in air to ambient temperature; 5. The resultant hardness achieved should be Max 255HB or lower.
Hardening —— 1. Preheat T1 to 480-500°C ,then up to 880-900°C. 2. Heat to the final hardening temperature of 1200°C and make sure the material must heat through. 3. Quench in the warm oil,and then complete the quench in air.(care MUST taken at this step); 4. T1tool steel is suitable for vacuum hardening.
Tempering —— 1. Tempering must do immediately after quenching; 2. Heat thoroughly and uniformly to the tempering temperature；3. Hold at the temperature for at least two hours (one hour per inch of the total thickness); 4. Triple tempering strongly recommended for T1 tool steel.
Forging of AISI HSS T1 Tool Steel
Preheat T1 high speed tool steel uniformly and slowly to 850-880°C. Increase the forging temperature for T-1 tool steel until 1050-1130°C. T1 HSS tool steel should be cooled very slowly after forging.
