Do you know the characteristic and its usages of cemented carbide?
Cemented carbide is a kind of alloy material which is made of hard compound of refractory metal and binder metal by powder metallurgy process. Cemented carbide is widely used as tool material, such as turning tool, milling tool, planing tool, drill bit, boring tool, etc., for cutting cast iron, nonferrous metal, plastic, chemical fiber, graphite, glass, stone and ordinary steel, also can be used for cutting heat-resistant steel, stainless steel, high manganese steel, tool steel and other difficult to process materials. New carbide cutters now cut hundreds of times faster than carbon steel.
Cemented carbide with high hardness, strength, abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance, known as the “teeth” industry, used in the manufacture of cutting tool, cutting tool, cobalt and wear-resistant parts, widely used in the military-industrial complex, aviation, machinery, metallurgy, oil drilling, mining tools, electronic communications, construction and other fields, along with the development of downstream industries, carbide increasing market demand. In addition, in the future, the manufacture of high-tech weapons and equipment, the progress of cutting-edge science and technology and the rapid development of nuclear energy will greatly increase the demand for cemented carbide products with high technological content and high quality and stability.
