A wide number of metallic parts, like integrated circuit (IC) lead frames, motor cases, and connectors require stamping technology. The stamping tools require high precision and must be able to easily handle large volumes at a high rate of speed. Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures a wide range cemented carbide (also known as solid carbide or tungsten carbide (WC)) stamping/forming tools with excellent consistency and quality. We partner with our customers to improve performance and develop solutions for their stamping/forming applications.
• Rectangular plates
• Stainless steel processing
• Films/thin sheet metal
• Electronics stamping
• Abrasive materials
• General purpose
• High wear resistance for applications demanding sharp edge profiles
• Higher yields due to controlled manufacturing processes creating cemented carbides with controlled grain sizes.
Standard sizes and customized specifications are available upon request.

(a) For sizes with width and length equal to 105 mm, actual size can vary from 103.8 to 106.8 mm depending on grade selection. Tolerances on width and length are +1.5 / 0 mm.
(b) For sizes with width and length not equal to 105 mm, tolerances on width and length are < 2% of size.
Carbide grades suitable for general purpose, stainless steel processing, films/thin sheet metals, and electronics stamping applications.
Ultrafine to medium grain size grades
Grades with hardness (HV30) from 1100 to 1700 and K1C from 10 to 19.
Sizes above 200 mm x 200 mm upon request
