9 Safety Precautions While Using Tungsten Carbide Tools


1) Cemented carbide is a hard and brittle material, which is brittle and damaged under the action of excessive force or some specific local stress and has a sharp edge.

2) Most of the cemented carbides are mainly composed of tungsten and cobalt and have high density. They should be handled as heavy objects during transportation and storage and handled with care.

3) Cemented carbide and steel have different thermal expansion coefficients. In order to avoid stress concentration cracking, attention should be paid to the appropriate temperature during welding.

4) Carbide cutting tools should be stored in a dry environment away from a corrosive atmosphere.

5) Cemented carbide tools will inevitably produce chips during the cutting process. Please prepare necessary labor protection supplies before processing.

6) If the coolant is used in the cutting process, please use the cutting fluid correctly for the sake of the service life of the machine tool.

7) For the tool that produces cracks during processing, please stop using it.

8) Carbide cutting tools will be dulled due to long-term use, and the strength will be reduced. Please do not let non-professionals sharpen them.

9) Please keep the worn alloy knives and fragments of alloy knives in a safe place to avoid harming others.
