AISI 1566 is a type of high manganese spring steel, is characterized by high elastic limit, yield strength and fatigue strength, with large hardenability and small decarbonization tendency. It has good machinability and relative machinability of 70% in the annealing state, but it is sensitive to overheating, easy to produce quenching cracks and temper brittleness. AISI/ASTM 1566 is used for making large flat spring, cushion spring and spring, and it is also suitable for making spring ring, valve spring, clutch spring, brake spring cold drawn wire (≤7mm), cold coil spring, etc. It is also the main material for making a diamond circular saw blade.

Spring steel refers to the steel specially used for making springs and elastic elements. The elasticity of steel depends on its capacity of elastic deformation, that is, the capacity of elastic deformation within the specified range makes it bear a certain load after the load is removed, there is no permanent deformation.
