Carbide rods are made of WC as the main raw material, plus other precious metals and paste phases, which are pressed and sintered by powder metallurgy. Carbide rods have the characteristics of high hardness and high strength, and they penetrate into all areas of our lives.
1. Carbide rods are used in the field of mechanical production and processing
Micro-drills in the PCB industry, electrode rods in the optoelectronic communication industry, cemented carbide drill bits, milling cutters, reamers, ejector rods, push rods, wear-resistant precision parts, integral CNC milling cutters and machining tools with holes in the machining industry.
The difference between the alloy grades of the carbide rods processed with 45 degrees and 55 degrees: When processing HRC45 material, consider using BT45 grade. For processing 55 degree materials, consider using BT55 grade.
2. Carbide rods are used as punches
Commonly used as a core rod. When it comes to punching needles, I have to explain the stamping die. Punching needles are an indispensable accessory when the stamping die is working. It is installed on the stamping die for continuous blanking, stamping, and punching operations to separate or plastically deform the processed materials, so as to obtain the desired finished product or semi-finished product.
3. Carbide rods in furniture industry
Commonly used in computer engraving sharp knives.
4. Carbide rods are used in the medical equipment industry
Commonly ones are integral cemented carbide steel burs for dentistry.
