Cemented carbides ?‘Hard’and‘Heavy’

Cemented carbides are produced by sintering hard metal carbide powder. These alloys are called simply "hard metal" and have the hardness second to that of diamond and the weight approximately twice that of steel. Generally produced by sintering mixed tungsten carbides with cobalt binders and mainly used in the field requires wear resistance such as cutting tools or dies.

Cemented carbides contribute to improvement of machining accuracy and cost reduction.

Cemented carbides are primarily used in the applications require wear resistance such as cutting tools or dies. Depending on the applications, titanium carbide (TiC) or tantalum carbide (TaC) are also added in order to improve the characteristics. Cemented carbides get little reduction of their characteristics even at high temperature and have excellent wear resistance. Therefore, cemented carbides are used for the machining tools such as lathes, milling machines etc.and manufacturing automobile parts such as engines, transmissions, steering etc., which contribute to improvement of machining accuracy and cost reduction.
