What is Carbide?

Carbide is usually called cemented carbide or tungsten carbide,  is a hard material used extensively as cutting tool material, as well as other industrial applications. It consists of fine particles of carbide cemented into a composite by a binder metal. Cemented carbides commonly use tungsten carbide (WC), titanium carbide (TiC), or tantalum carbide (TaC) as the aggregate. Mentions of "carbide" or "tungsten carbide" in industrial contexts usually refer to these cemented composites.

Most of the time, carbide cutters will leave a better surface finish on the part, and allow faster machining than high-speed steel or other tool steels. Carbide tools can withstand higher temperatures at the cutter-workpiece interface than standard high-speed steel tools (which is a principal reason for the faster machining). Carbide is usually superior for the cutting of tough materials such as carbon steel or stainless steel, as well as in situations where other cutting tools would wear away faster, such as high-quantity production runs.

 

Cemented Carbide tools is called "Industrial teeth"

Cemented carbide is used to manufacture cutting tools, knives, cobalt tools and wear-resistant parts. They are widely used in military, aerospace, machining, metallurgy, petroleum drilling, mining tools, electronic communications, construction and other fields. With the development of downstream industries, hard The demand for alloys continues to increase.

So cemented carbide is very important for industry, and is called " industrial teeth" . These carbide inserts and tools share a common property which is that they all change shapes of things by cutting and producing chips.

ToolingBox mainly offers carbides inserts for Woodworking and Metalworking applications.
