Carbide can be used as molds, cutting tools, drill bits, in mining operations, oil and gas drilling, aerospace, etc. Common parts include hardware molds (such as wire drawing dies, bolt molds, nut molds, and various fastener molds), rock drilling tools, mining tools, drilling tools, measuring tools, wear-resistant parts, metal abrasives, cylinder linings, precision bearings, nozzles, rolls, etc. Carbide is a material made from a fine mix of tungsten cobalt alloy, tungsten titanium alloy, and other metal carbides. Compared to traditional high-speed steel, carbide has higher hardness and better wear resistance, thus it is widely used in many fields.

  1. Application in Carbide Molds Carbide accounts for about 8% of the total production of carbides in the mold manufacturing field. It is used to manufacture various types of molds, including wire drawing dies, cold extrusion dies, cold heading dies, hot extrusion dies, hot forging dies, and forming punch dies. These molds play an important role in manufacturing.
  2. Application in Cutting and Machining Carbide occupies an important position in the manufacture of cutting tools. In manufacturing, carbide tools are used for processing almost all materials, such as stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, steel, brass, etc. Carbide tools perform excellently in high-speed cutting, deep hole processing, and high-efficiency machining.
  3. Application in Mining Carbide, characterized by high hardness, high density, good wear resistance, and high tensile strength, is widely used in the field of mining. Carbide chisels, drill bits, cutting blades, etc., have become indispensable tools in mining. Its application continues to expand in coal, metal mines, building excavation, and cement production.
  4. Application in Oil and Gas Drilling In the field of oil and gas drilling, carbide materials are widely used in rock drilling, mechanical drilling, and completion. Its stable physical and chemical properties, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and wear resistance make it promising in the exploration and extraction of oil and natural gas.
  5. Application in Aerospace The aerospace field has extremely high requirements for material properties, including fatigue resistance, strength, stiffness, corrosion resistance, and lightweight. Carbide is widely used in aerospace, especially important in engine manufacturing. Carbide guide vanes, turbine hubs, compressor blade materials, etc., are essential materials in the aerospace field.

In summary, as a multifunctional material, carbide plays an important role in multiple fields. Its excellent hardness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance make it an indispensable material in manufacturing and engineering fields.
