M2 (1.3343) is the most popular high-speed steel with good all-round toughness, machinability, wear resistance and moderate red hardness properties.
M2 High-Speed Steel applications:
M2 is mainly used in a wide range of cutting and machine tools where demands for hot hardness are intermediate, such as twist drill bits, knives, reamers, broaches, milling tools, taps and metal power saws. M2 is also suitable for cold work applications such as punching, forming and pressing.
Whilst M2 is a great high speed tool steel, the metallurgy of tool steels is complex, so if you need any help determining the best steel for a given application, please get in touch with details of your intended usage.
