M7 is one of the High Speed Tool Steels in the molybdenum alloy family, with tungsten, chromium and vanadium for strengthening. It has good hardenability and is very wear resistant. Very high resistance to softening at elevated temperatures and good toughness. Deep hardening response.

M7 is widely used for cutting tools in machining operations. Sendzimir rolls, segment and circular cutters, profile cutting tools, thread cutting drills and cold forming tools.

Soft Annealing
Heat to 820-880oC, cool slowly in furnace. This will produce a maximum Brinell hardness of 230-280.

Heat up to 450-600oC, preheat to 850oC and then to 1050oC. Harden from a temperature of 1180-1220oC followed by oil, air quenching or warm bath at 550oC. Hardness after quenching is 64-66 HRC.

Tempering temperature: 3 x 1 hour at 540-560oC. Hardness after tempering is min 64 HRC.

Hot forming temperature: 1100-900oC.

Cold Working: In the annealed condition M7 may be cold worked by conventional methods.

Machinability is medium, rating about 60% that of the W group water hardening low alloy tool steels at 100% for comparison.

Corrosion Resistance
Although this alloy contains chromium and molybdenum it is still a steel and thus will corrode. It should be protected from rusting.

This is a complex alloy but is weldable. Consult the supplier for procedures and details.
