Annealed high speed steels for making tools such as W6Mo5Cr4V2, W9Mo3Cr4V1, W18Cr4V were treated with 5 kw continuous adjusting CO2 laser. By controlling laser- processing parameters, we achieved variable datum about the depth and hardness of the surface hardening layer of the samples. The relationship between the depth of hardening layer and laser processing parameters were studied with microhardness meter, scanning electronic microscope. The results showed that the sample's micro organization was markedly fined, dislocation and twin crystal subconstruction was strikingly increased, its hardness was obviously higher than that of general heat treatment.
