Steel, Bars, Wire, and Forgings, 8 V - 4 Cr - 4 W - 3MO (2.45 - 2.55C), Powder Metallurgy Product, Hot Isostatically Pressed
This specification covers a premium aircraft-quality, high-alloy steel in the form of bars, wire, forgings, and forging stock. These products have been used typically for critical parts, such as bearings operating under heavy loads and high speeds at moderate temperatures and subject to very rigid inspection standards, but usage is not limited to such applications.
AMS6556 is a new specification to cover UNS T11453, a high speed steel, in the form of gas-atomized and HIP-consolidated solid bar products, forgings and forging stock.
