    When it comes to performance under pressure, tungsten carbide inserts can take the heat. This durable, extremely strong metal is made by cementing grains of tungsten carbide into cobalt or nickel. The result is exceptional hardness, second only to the diamond. In fact,

it is this hardness that led to its use beginning in the 1920s and through World War II. Following the war, as cementing processes were honed, tungsten carbide became an indispensable material for use in manufacturing, mining and other industries.


     Today, carbide inserts are produced in different classifications to offer reliable, consistent performance for various materials or applications. Carbide inserts are particularly appropriate when wear is an issue. The exceptional hardness and stability of tungsten carbide allows machining to meet very exacting tolerances while at the same time minimizing equipment wear. Plus, carbide inserts are more resistant to abrasion at high or low temperatures, ensuring cost-effective performance over the lifetime of the insert.
