Here is everything you need to know about machining tungsten carbide. We have gathered the answers to your most frequent question from our knowledge instilled engineers to deliver you a better understanding of the material. From definition to its industrial use you will find every bit of tungsten carbide information in this guide.
Tungsten carbide is a compound made of tungsten and carbon and it is known in different industries due to its high durability and extreme melting point. Manufacturers use this material for applications that requires wear and impact resistance such as cutters, abrasives, dies, and punches. It is also used in armor-piercing shells and jewelry making because of its compatible features.
Tungsten is a dense light grey metal with a melting point of 3422 degree celsius with immense resistance to corrosion. The hardness level of tungsten is similar to hardened steel and emerald and soft enough to be cut with a hacksaw. It is ductile material that can be extruded into wire and is also used as filament in most incandescent lightbulbs. Tungsten is also used in specialist welding applications in multiple industries. Let’s dive in further to find more about it.
Tungsten carbide is a very hard and brittle material with low thermal conductivity and expansion. Its high resistance to abrasive wear and high melting point are the main reasons for its use in a number of applications.
Tungsten is an extremely difficult material to cut along with superior wear and corrosion resistance which makes it useful in manufacturing. Although, machining tungsten carbide can damage the cutting tool and can also cause breaking and cracking during the machining operations. But there are certain ways to machining tungsten carbide.
Heating tungsten carbide before the machining improves its machinability and prevents damages to the cutting tools. To machine the tungsten you need the right machining tool and the cutting edges of the tool must not lose their sharpness during the machining operation. For this, it is essential to use tool geometry that can deliver efficient chip control. EDM and diamond-charged grinding wheels are also effective techniques to machine the tungsten carbide.
Tungsten carbide is a strong and durable material used across the planet in many industries. It has extremely high density and hardness only second to diamond. It is an excellent conductor and can be molded into many shapes that making it perfect to use in machined parts. Below mentioned are some of the prominent advantages of machining tungsten carbide parts.
Tungsten has the highest melting point as compared to other purest form metals. This feature makes it an excellent material for high-temperature applications such as aerospace, construction, and automotive industries machined parts.
Tungsten carbide is resistant to corrosion and perfect for machined parts that are used in corrosive environments and outdoor applications. It is considered the best material for the parts that have prolonged exposure to corrosive substances like water, solvent, and acid.
Tungsten is an extremely robust metal with the highest tensile strength of all pure metals. In metal fabrication, tungsten rigidity can play an important role in drawing it into thin wires without fracturing. Take an example of tungsten used in light bulb filaments, In this particular example, the thin wire is heated at an extremely high temperature in order to emit light. Tungsten’s high melting point is one crucial point to make this happen.
There are many metals that are used in various applications across many industries but there is no material that possesses particular attributes that of tungsten carbide. The combination of these attributes is resistance to heat, scratches, rust, and pitting. Let’s have a look at some of the industries that use tungsten carbide for machined parts.
Surgical instruments used in the health industry are made up of tungsten carbide. These instruments are scissors, forceps, hemostats, blade handles, and so on. Tungsten carbide blades can be sharpened to have a finer edge because of the tungsten hardness and also reduce the resistance and pitting to give the instrument tipped with greater longevity. Tungsten carbide is more expensive than stainless steel but needs more delicate handling and it works better.
This is the newest addition in the industrial usage of tungsten carbide. Tungsten carbide is gaining popularity in jewelry because of its hardness and high scratch resistance. It is an attractive alloy used in crafting rings, pendants, earrings, and other jewelry when cut and polished correctly. Tungsten carbide is stunningly beautiful and used in weddings and engagement rings because it’s cheaper than gold in addition to the advanced nature of design and high finishes.
High-density materials are used in aerospace parts, with good mechanical strength and machinability. The density of the tungsten helps to reduce the physical size of the component and provides greater control in weight distribution. Propellers, rotor blades, inertial systems, bucking bars, fluid control systems, trim weights, and prototype models are the applications in the aerospace industry that uses tungsten steel.
Tungsten carbide is extensively used on mining and drilling operation instruments like top hammer rock drill bits, roller-cutters, downhole hammers, longwall plow chisels, raise boring reamers, longwall shearer picks, and tunnel boring machines. It is commonly used as button inserts.
Hikers trekking poles for balance and to relieve pressure uses tungsten carbide tips to achieve traction when placed on a hard surface and last longer than other material used in tips. Rollerski tips are made up of tungsten carbide.
Snowmobiles drive tracks are also inserted with the tungsten carbide tipped spikes known as studs, these studs improve traction. Tungsten carbide in studs vehicles, bicycles, and motorcycles tires improve the traction on the ice while steel studs are preferred because of their superior wear resistance.
Due to its highly desirable qualities, tungsten steel suppliers receive high demand from many industries. Frequently produced tungsten products include light bulb filaments, cathode tube filaments, X-ray screens, vacuum tube filaments, circuit boards components, gyro motors, drilling equipment, flywheels, weapons, airplane parts, construction equipment, boring bars, die casting tools.
Tungsten electrodes are a unique example of tungsten carbide application, they are an integral part of electric arc welding, a process that combines two pieces of metal together by applying high heat emitted by the voltage of electric current.
Tungsten carbide is gaining its name day by day in manufacturing industries for its unique and impressive characteristics. Below mentioned are some of the major industries using tungsten carbide in their products.
Repeated high energy impacts on the steel parts damage more frequently. Tungsten has high impact strength and can resist impact and wear applications for a longer period of time as compared to ceramic and steel.
The life and efficiency of the wear parts can be affected by impact, corrosion, and heat but tungsten has many features that can help it perform effectively to resist wear and improve the work-life of the equipment. Steel parts that experience extreme abrasion don’t last long, but tungsten steel lasts longer than typical steel.
Tungsten steel is commonly used in tool manufacturing such as milling tools, turning tools cutters, drills, and boring tools. As compared to tungsten steel, tool steel is cheaper, easy to forge, and has good machinability. But tool steel has poor hardenability, distortion and cracking tendency, low wear resistance, and thermal strength and needs to be quenched with water, alkaline water, and saltwater.
The tungsten steel makes up for the shortcoming of the tool steel because of its impressive red hardness. The cutting speed of tungsten steel is hundreds of times that of tool steel. Therefore tool steel can only be used in the manufacturing of small tools and woodworking tools.
Small cold working dies with a simple shape, low precision, small size such as small punch, scissors, cold stamping die, cold heading die are produced from tool steel. High-performing tools require strong and hard materials that are resilient to the most extreme environment, these kinds of applications and tools use tungsten steel.
This discussion brings us to the conclusion that both tungsten steel and tool steel can be used for the making of the mold components such as punch, ejector pin, core pin, and mold cores depending upon their applications and what kind of material they are working on.
Tungsten carbide is an important material due to its excellent mechanical and chemical properties and has incomparable properties such as high hardness, good toughness, and wear resistance. Machining tungsten carbide is extremely hard and requires complex machining techniques. EDM is considered the best possible machining process to machine the brittle and strong tungsten carbide.
It is considered the best option while machining complex geometries and difficult to cut material such as tungsten carbide. EDM is capable of machining complex contours with high accuracy for materials that are not amenable to conventional methods. EDM can also be used as a surface modification technique for tungsten carbide.
Presently, tungsten carbide demand has increased many folds for the production of cutting tools, dies, and other tools and parts because of its impeccable characteristics. So, EDM is considered as a technique that can easily machine tungsten carbide, and that is why it has opted as a priority machining option for tungsten carbide.
