Analysis of tool steel

This study demonstrates the precision that the Axios FAST can deliver for controlling the composition of tool steel, as well as the speed of analysis so important for controlling the cost of production.

Tool steels are alloys that are suited for making tools because of their hardness, resistance to abrasion, ability to hold a cutting edge, and/or their resistance to deformation at elevated temperatures (red-hardness). Tool steel is generally used in a heat-treated state and their properties are obtained from alloying elements like Cr, Mo, Co, V and W.
