Cast cobalt alloys were developed to bridge the gap between high-speed steels and carbides. Although comparable in room-temperature hardness to high-speed steel tools, cast cobalt alloy tools retain their hardness to a much higher temperature and can be used at higher cutting speeds than high-speed steel tools. This article provides an overview of the processing, properties, and applications of these alloys.
