A New Low Alloy High Speed Power Hack Saw Blades


Article Preview

Plasma surface alloying for low alloy high speed power hack saw blades was introduced.The bulk material of the blade is made of low alloy steel, while the teeth of which possess a composition of high speed steel like as a result of surface modification by a plasma surface alloying process.It is a solid diffusion process eliminating method avoids the formation of coarse primary carbides which is a major problem encountered in the production of smelting high speed steel. As a result the carbides in the layer of high speed steel are fine and well-distributed.Therefore,it has not only well wear-resistance but also toughness. Besides, the blade also has the advantages of ease manufacturing and low cost.
