Tungsten carbide has characteristics of high hardness, strength, wear resistance and corrosion resistance. It is known as the "industrial tooth" and is used to manufacture cutting tools, cutting tools, cobalt tools and wear-resistant parts. It is widely used in military industry, aerospace and aerospace. , mechanical processing, metallurgy, oil drilling, mining tools, electronic communications, construction and other fields. With the development of downstream industries, its market demand continues to increase. In addition, in the future, the manufacturing of high-tech weapons and equipment, the advancement of cutting-edge science and technology, and the rapid development of nuclear energy will greatly increase the demand for tungsten carbide products with high technical content, high quality and stability.
Tungsten carbide cutting tools have a cutting speed 4 to 7 times higher than high-speed steel and a tool life that is 5 to 80 times longer. For manufacturing molds and measuring tools, the service life is 20 to 150 times longer than that of alloy tool steel.
It can cut hard materials with around 50HRC.
Tungsten carbide is very brittle and cannot be machined. It is difficult to make integral tools with complex shapes. Therefore, blades of different shapes are often made and installed on the tool body or mold body using welding, bonding, mechanical clamping and other methods.
