VASCO M-7 is a molybdenum type of high-speed steel having tungsten, chromium and molybdenum contents similar to AISI Type MI high-speed steel, but with higher carbon and vanadium. The increased percentages of carbon and vanadium add to the cutting efficiency of the steel without materially lessening the toughness. This steel has met with considerable favor among high-speed steel users who are seeking improved cutting properties for specific applications. Its many applications include drills, end mills, milling cutters, punches and shear blades. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and elasticity. It also includes information on forming, heat treating, machining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: TS-379. Producer or source: Teledyne Vasco.
