Magnet Broach Cutting (Also known as Annular Cutters) to rapidly create large holes in metal is an everyday task for those working in structural, steel erection or heavy metal industries. Performance and reliability is a key consideration when choosing the right tool for the job.

In this article we take a look at a vital component in the manufacture of our high performance CarbideMax TCT Broach Cutters, Tungsten Carbide.

What is Tungsten Carbide?

Tungsten Carbide is a chemical compound made up of equal parts of tungsten and carbon atoms. In its basic form, tungsten carbide is a fine grey powder. Its through a process call sintering that it is pressed and formed into shapes offering a wide variety of uses.

Tungsten Carbide is a tough cookie, it’s twice as rigid as steel and double the density. This makes is a very hard metal and it can only be finished with abrasives of superior hardness.

These properties make it ideal for use in tooling range for using on even the toughest steels. Cutting tools that utilise Tungsten Carbide are extremely resistant to abrasion and can also withstand higher temperatures than standard high-speed steel (HSS) tools.
