Tool Steels (Fifth Edition)
Chapter 2: Classification and Selection of Tool Steels
The several specific grades or compositions of tool steels have evolved over time and have been organized into useful groupings. This chapter presents the AISI classification system for tool steels, which categorizes tool steels by their alloying, applications, or heat treatment, and briefly describes the characteristics of each major group. It discusses selection criteria for tool steels, along with examples.
