What Is the Purpose of Tungsten carbide rods?


Tungsten carbide rods are cemented carbide round rods, also called cemented carbide bars, which are simply tungsten steel round rods or carbide rods. Tungsten carbide rod is a composite material composed of refractory metal compound (hard phase) and binder metal (bonding phase) produced by powder metallurgy.


Tungsten carbide rods are mainly used for drills, end mills, and reamers. It can also be used for cutting, stamping, and measuring tools. It is used in papermaking, packaging, printing, and non-ferrous metal processing industries. In addition, it is also widely used to process high-speed steel tools, tungsten carbide milling cutters, tungsten carbide cutters, NAS cutting tools, aviation tools, tungsten carbide drill bits, milling cutter core bits, high-speed steel, tapered milling cutters, metric milling cutters, micro end milling cutter, reaming pilot, electronic cutter, step drill, metal cutting saw, double-guaranteed gold drill, gun barrel, angle cutter, tungsten carbide rotary file, tungsten carbide cutter, etc.

Solid Carbide rods can be used not only for cutting and drilling tools (such as micron, twisted drills, drill vertical mining tool specifications) but also for input needles, various roll wore parts, and structural materials. In addition, it can be used in many fields, such as machinery, chemical, petroleum, metallurgy, electronics, and defense industries.
