Tungsten carbide inserts

We are a professional carbide supplier which produces various grades of carbide inserts. With high precision and reliability, Tungsten carbide inserts are widely used in different industries.

Tungsten carbide inserts


Boring tool, grooving tools and periphery turning tools. The inserts are sorted as clamped inserts, wood-cutting tools, milling & turning inserts, indexable inserts etc.

Many tungsten inserts for mining tools are made of tungsten carbide. Mining and tunneling cutting tools are fitted with Cemented Carbide tips so it is called "Button Bits". Only man-made diamond may replace the Cemented Carbide buttons when conditions are ideal, but as rock drilling is a tough task, Cemented Carbide button bits remain the most used type throughout the world.

Carbide inserts are for metal cutting. Cemented carbide is more expensive than other materials and it is more brittle, easy to chipping and breaking. To find a solution to this problem, the carbide cutting tip is usually in the form of a small insert for a larger tipped tool whose shank is made of another material, usually carbon tool steel. Most modern face mills use carbide inserts, as well as many lathe tools and end mills.
