Various Shapes of Tungsten Carbide Burr


Tungsten carbide is one of the most powerful tools in the world, and tungsten carbide burr is one of the tungsten carbide products. Tungsten carbide burrs are also called cemented carbide burrs, tungsten carbide rotary burrs, tungsten carbide rotary files or tungsten carbide die grinders, which are used for cutting, shaping, grinding, and removing excess materials. Like other tungsten carbide products, tungsten carbide burrs also have various shapes. In this article, we are going to get familiar with the different shapes of tungsten carbide burrs.


Tungsten carbide burrs are widely used in many industries, like aerospace, automotive, dental, sculpting, and so on. According to different cuts, tungsten carbide burrs can be divided into two kinds of tungsten carbide burrs. One is a single cut, which only one flute, a right-handed spiral flute. And the other is double-cut, which has 2 flutes across each other. Tungsten carbide burrs with single cuts are more suitable for heavy removal of materials and create long chips while tungsten carbide burrs with double cuts are more suitable for medium-light removal of materials and create small chips. Tungsten carbide burrs with diamond cut are one kind of tungsten carbide burrs with double cut, which can leave a smoother finish surface.



Except for different types of cuts, tungsten carbide burrs can also be divided into different shapes. Here are some common shapes of tungsten carbide burrs and their applications.


Tungsten carbide ball burrs

Tungsten carbide ball burrs are very suitable for micro setting, carving, shaping, engraving wood, stone, eggshell, bone or plastics, and grinding. The smallest of tungsten carbide ball burrs can only be produced with a diameter of 0.5mm, which is a perfect tool for intricate carving.

Tungsten carbide tree burrs

Tungsten carbide tree burrs are used to round off edges and make concave cuts. The pointed end of the burrs can grind some areas that are difficult to be reached. 

Tungsten carbide pointed cone

Tungsten carbide pointed cone burrs are used to cut and smooth materials such as metals, plastics, and wood, as well as remove some materials.

Tungsten carbide round nose

Tungsten carbide burrs with a round nose, or with a ball nose, are applied to cut and define metals, plastics, and wood, and make concave cuts and hollow out. The sides of the burrs can also cut flat areas and round edges.

Tungsten carbide oval burrs

Tungsten carbide oval burrs make the carving, defining metals, plastics, and wood, as well as removing much easier. They can also be used to make round edges, create texture, and make concave cuts.

Tungsten carbide countersink burrs

Tungsten carbide countersink burrs are also used for deburring, beveling, chamfering, and counterboring. This kind of tungsten carbide burrs is easy to get into acute angled areas of the workpiece.
