Hyperion manufacturers two premium cemented carbide (also known as tungsten carbide (WC)) grades for canmaker can tooling punch sleeves – DZ10 and DZ18. In addition, Hyperion is continuously developing new tooling materials, including lighter weight carbides and materials with improved resistance to adhesion, abrasion, and corrosion.
Grade DZ10 cemented carbide offers outstanding performance compared to that of standard grades. It is used in the manufacturing of both aluminum and steel cans.
Grade DZ18 cemented carbide is used for canmaking punches. This patented material provides many benefits to the canmaker, including a production increase of 3 times what standard punch materials produce.
*New bodymaker set up to be considered when changing from conventional to lightweight grade; for example, this grade provides 0.6 kg weight in 33 cl punches.
Your Hyperion sales person can offer their expertise in selecting the cemented carbide best suited to solve your canmaker can tooling needs.
