HARD Metal Industries Pty Ltd (HMI) will display tungsten carbide and PCD tools on Stand 4908 at AIMEX 2007.
Tungsten Carbide hard facing wires, electrodes, rods, composite materials will also be on display, along with tungsten carbide tipped wear parts.
Tungsten carbide is made out of tungsten carbide and cobalt. The manufacturing process is highly complex and the raw materials are very expensive.
Tungsten carbide is said to be one of the hardest materials, but is also very brittle. Its combination with soft cobalt creates a material with a high degree of hardness and resistance to wear, but which is also sturdy enough to stand up to the most extreme impacts.
