General Applications of Tungsten Carbide


The high performance of tungsten carbide, in addition to high hardness, also has excellent wear resistance, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, etc., Tungsten carbide is widely used in various industries due to its unique high hardness and high wear resistance. What are its common applications?

1. Cutting tools

Tungsten carbide can be used in various cutting tools. Because of its high hardness and resistance to compression, tungsten carbide is one of the best materials for cutting tools. Tungsten carbide-cutting tools include carbide drills, small circular saws, carbide cutters, and so on. As a cutting tool material, tungsten carbide is the most widely used field.

2. Tungsten steel mold material

Under normal circumstances, the proportion used in the production of various molds is about 8%, including carbide dies, cold heading dies, cold forming dies, cold forming dies, hot forging dies, and drawing mandrels. Typically, the carbide used for mold making is selected from medium to high cobalt grades with coarse grains.

3. Wear parts

Tungsten carbide wear parts include tungsten carbide nozzles, tungsten carbide balls, tungsten carbide valve seats, bushings, carbide tire spikes, carbide guides, and so on.

4. Mining Tools

Cemented carbide for the mining industry accounts for about 30% of the total tungsten carbide production. Due to their high hardness, high toughness, outstanding bending strength, and excellent wear resistance, carbide mining tools are commonly used in exploration drill bits, cone drills, and coal cutters for oil and gas fields, engineering road construction tools, and impact drilling. in the building materials industry.

5. Structural parts

Carbide structural parts include a rotating seal ring, turning head, grinding machine spindle, bearing, etc., which can effectively solve the problem of thermal cracks in the mechanical seal ring.
