Carbide is a popular material preferred by cutting
The superior properties of carbides when compared to its contemporary materials ,make it the first choice amongst cutting tool manufacturers. Chemically carbides are compounds of carbon with another element which may be silicon, boron, aluminium or tungsten. Carbides are extremely hard in structure which makes them an ideal choice for the manufacture of industrial tools, equipment and machinery parts.
Carbide router bit, carbide reamer and carbide drill bits are some of the popular uses of carbides. Industrially used carbides are referred to as cemented carbides and are available as various grades of materials for different purposes. Wear grade carbide is primarily used for the manufacture of dies, machine and tool guides, while Impact grade carbide is employed in making higher shock resistant carbide products used for dies, particularly for stamping and forming and cutting tool grade carbide is used for making cutting and drilling instruments.
Carbide drill bits are popularly used products made of carbides. Carbide drill bits and carbide reamers afford a better and smoother finish to the material being drilled when compared to regular drills. Apart from this higher wear resistance of the material make it more durable with minimal maintenance.
The efficiency of carbide drill bits and carbide router bits when compared to conventional drill bits compared to conventional drills ensures faster drilling with better finish. The heat resistance of carbide is higher than steel and other material which permit longer duration of continuous and effective use despite heat build up.
The toughness, high compressive strength, high modulus of elasticity, resistance to abrasion, thermal resistance, wear resistance, chemical inertness and torsional resistance are some of the ideal requirements for industrially used materials for machines ,drills and cutting instruments. Carbides fulfil all these criteria making them the most dependable and commonly used material by cutting tool manufacturer and drilling tool manufacturers.
This supplemented by the fact that these equipment require minimal maintenance and have extremely high durability works in favour of the material and results in great demand. Carbide tool manufacturers have painstakingly discovered the various properties of carbide compounds over the years through meticulous research. They combine the ideal properties of carbide with efficiently designed equipment to best utilise the advantageous features of carbides.
This combination results in the most efficient cutting and drilling tools which offer high performance for years to come. With constant research in the field of material properties as well as machinery design, the whole process of manufacturing of industrial equipment and machinery has been revolutionised. With the kind of scientific principles involved in these processes, carbide tool manufacturers make it a constant endeavour to deliver the best tools with high performance.
