HSS Cutting Tools

HSS cutting tools, short for High Speed Steel, are best suited to job shop production environments where versatility and tool cost are of the highest importance to an end-user. These tools can resist vibrations, whatever the type of machine tool, even if rigidity has been lost over time and regardless of work-piece clamping conditions. The material can also cope with varying lubrication conditions which may result in thermal changes.
