The preheating of measuring and cutting tool steel is spheroid zing annealing, final heat treatment is quenching + low temperature tempering and hardness after heat treatment can reach 60~65HRC. When heat treat tool steel grades consideration should be given to hardening temperature, including ratio of heating, cooling and soaking times which will differ due to factors such as the shape and size of each chemical component. Other considerations during heat treatment include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities.
