Abstract: The expansion curves during the procedure of continuous cooling which high vanadium high speed steel (HSS) was tempered with 250°C, 550°C and 600°C after 1050°C quenching were determined by the Gleeble-1500D thermal simulation test device, and the curves were analyzed subsequently. The hardness and microstructure of high vanadium HSS under different tempering temperatures were analyzed by means of SEM, TEM and X-ray diffraction, and the influence of tempering temperature on the hardness and retained austenite …
