cast cobalt alloy cutting tools consist 40-50% Co,25 to 35 % Cr,15 to 20 % W wit h trace amount of other elements.

these tools are made into desired shape by cast ing in graphite molds .high hardness is achieved by casting which is an advantag e over HSS .wear resistance is better than HSS but less cemented carbides.toughn ess is better than cemented carbides but less than HSS.they are capable of heavy roughing cuts at greater cutting speed than HSS and feed greater than carbides.
