    In ASTM A681 standard, L6 steel grade is in L-type for special purpose tool steels. AISI L6 tool steel
    is in the general class of alloy, oil-hardening tool steel that is
    characterized by good toughness. ASTM L6 tool steel is suitable for use
    as tools, dies, and machine parts, which require a good combination of
    hardness and toughness.

    Due to its lower carbon content and
    relatively high nickel content, L6 tool steel has slightly better
    shock-resistance than more highly alloyed types and should be used where
    some wear-resistance can be sacrificed for increased toughness.

    Elastic modulus 190-210 GPa 27557-30457 ksi

    4. Forging of L6 Tool Steel

    Forge at 1079°C (1975 F) down to 871°C (1600 F). Do not forge below 843°C (1550 F).

    5. AISI L6 Tool Steel Heat Treatment

    Hardening

    Preheating:
    Heat steel L6 at a rate not exceeding 204°C (400°F) per hour (222°C per
    hour) to 621-677°C (1150-1250°F) and equalize. Soak for 30 minutes for
    the first inch (25.4 mm) of thickness, plus 15 minutes for each
    additional inch (25.4 mm).

    Quenching

    Quench L6 tool steel in oil to 66-51°C (150-125°F).

    Tempering

    Temper
    L6 steels immediately after quenching. Hold at temperature for 1 hour
    per inch (25.4 mm) of thickness when tempering at 204°C (400°F), 4 hours
    minimum, then air cool to ambient temperature.
    However, where increased toughness is desired, at a sacrifice of some hardness, higher tempering temperatures are often used.

    AISI L6 steel does not become brittle, as many other die steels do, when tempered in the range of 232°C to 426°C (450 to 800°F).

    To
    minimize the possibility of cracking, the steel should be tempered
    immediately after hardening and should be heated slowly to the desired
    tempering temperature.

    Annealing

    Annealing of steel L6 must be performed after hot working and before re-hardening.

    Heat
    to 760°C (1400°F) and hold one hour per inch of maximum thickness. Then
    cool slowly with the furnace at a rate not exceeding 28°C per hour(50°F
    per hour) to 538°C (1000°F). Continue cooling to ambient temperature in
    the furnace or in air.

    For improved machinability, hold at 760°C
    (1400°F) for 1 hour per inch (25.4mm) of maximum thickness; 2 hours
    minimum. Then cool slowly with the furnace cool from 677°C (1250°F) to
    760°C (1400°F), hold for 8 hours, then air cool to ambient temperature.

    Because of its air-hardening ability, steel L6 should not be normalized.

    6. Machinability of Steel L6

    Machinability
    of tool steel L6 is very good. It rates 90% of the machinability of the
    W-group water hardening low alloy steels rated 100% as a baseline.

    7. Applications of ASTM A681 L6 Tool Steel

    AISI
    L6 cold working tool steel is for general purpose tools and dies where
    greater toughness is required, but with some sacrifice of
    abrasion-resistance.

    Typically used below applications:

    • spindles,

    • forming rolls,

    • punches,

    • blanking and forming dies,

    • trimmer dies,

    • clutch parts,

    • pawls,

    • bearings,

    • chucks parts,

    • rollers,

    • knuckle pins,

    • clutch pins,

    • shear blades

    FANUC America Authorized System Integrator Inovatech Engineering is helping to revolutionize the steel fabrication industry by providing fabricators with automated solutions that include industrial robots from FANUC to plasma cut structural steel beams and heavy plates. The system seen here is Inovatech’s SteelPRO or SP900 – A complete robotic beam line and plate cutting system. Inovatech’s SP900 comes standard with four-side cutting, 65 feet of infeed and outfeed conveyor, two 6’ x 10’ robotic plate tables, installation and training. The SP900 also comes standard with all the software required to run the system, including ProNest® nesting software from Hypertherm.

    The SP900 performs the work of seven single-purpose fabrication machines, and eliminates the need to transport profiles to other work cells. Four-side cutting, coping, plasma drilling, marking, beam splitting and sawing with continuous operation and high production volume are all possible with the SP900. Inovatech’s SteelPRO software automatically creates the cut program while the nine-axis robotic gantry performs the four-side beam processing.

    The SP900 is a complete robotic beam line machine with built-in touch sensing and collision protection. A single FANUC robot can process all four sides of a beam at once, making this robotic plasma cutting system fast and cost efficient. The SP900 combines a high performance six-axis FANUC robot with a robotic gantry and precision-made Güdel® linear track system to create a total of nine axes. In addition to providing versatility, using this type of precise, reliable equipment results in aerospace quality repeatability, as the SP900 can plasma cut structural steel and ‘drill’ bolt holes to 0.02mm.

    Finally the SP900 robotic plate table system cuts and processes flat plate, base plates and stiffener plates with six-axis beveling capability. The standard SP900 system comes equipped with two 6’ by 10’ plate tables that allow for continuous production – while one table is in production the other table can be loaded and unloaded. These plate tables can be upgraded to two 10’ by 24’ robotic plate tables. Hypertherm’s plasma cutting units power all cutting in Inovatech’s systems. The SP900 comes standard with high definition plasma and industry leading True Hole® technology from Hyperthem that is able to cut, saw, plasma drill, slot, mark and cope structural profiles up to 3.2″ (80mm) thick. Hypertherm plasma units on Inovatech SteelPRO machines produce outstanding quality bolt holes in just seconds.

    Inovatech’s team of dedicated engineers take the time to understand their customer’s needs and requirements to develop productive and profitable solutions. Put the Inovatech team and their world-class integrated robotic fabrication solutions to work for you. To learn more please visit http://www.inovatechengineering.com.
