Headmade Materials launches new M2 tool steel for ColdMetalFusion

Headmade Materials is expanding its portfolio of available materials for the ColdMetalFusion standard with the release of its new M2 tool steel material and unveils first lead application in the machining tool industry.

Unterpleichfeld, Germany – Headmade Materials has developed the M2 tool steel for ColdMetalFusion, which exhibits well-balanced toughness, wear resistance and hardness properties. With a part density of up to 99%, the tool steel M2 untaps superior mechanical performance that the ColdMetalFusion standard is renowned for.

The M2 tool steel is a hardenable high-speed steel with a tungsten-molybdenum matrix suitable for a broad variety of applications and widely used for cutting tools such as twist drills, taps, milling cutters, saws and knives. Worldwide, the M2 type is by far the most popular high-speed steel having replaced grade T1 in most applications. The reasons for this are the wide heat-treating range as well as the excellent combination of red hardness, toughness and wear resistance which open up a broad field of applications.

Headmade Materials was running the material in its pre-series program for advanced application development. After successful testing in the wake of a lead project for a cutting tool holder together with ColdMetalFusion Alliance partner MIMplus, the company is now launching the M2 tool steel as a commercially available material.

Headmade Materials intends to showcase M2 tool steel together with the already running commercial application at the booth of the ColdMetalFusion Alliance in hall 11.1 booth D48 during Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany.
