Tungsten Carbide NUTS - Moulds industry
The excellent compression strength combined with good abrasion resistance and high elastic modulus make hard metals very suitable for moulding applications. These include cold stamping and drawing. For this latter application, a high level of hardness is required, using a hard metal with high compression strength and good abrasion resistance with reflecting surface finish. The cobalt content is reduced to the minimum levels with a fine grain and maximum hardness. In this case, the high fragility that comes from it is not important, because the stresses are only compression and shocks are totally absent.
Also for the Wire processing tools the solutions offered are many and articulated. If we think of the wide use, from the simple steel wire for nail production to steel Wire for screws and bolts, electric wire to wire for the production of wire springs in nylon for stockings etc. We supply nuts for moulding and drawing, wire guides, rollers for deformation, wire cutting ...
In these cases WC-Co binary grades are used with 6% weight
