Substrates for PDC Cutters

Hyperion cemented carbide substrate

Hyperion Materials & Technologies manufactures highly engineered cemented carbide substrates for polycrystalline diamond (PDC) enhanced cutters.  Our carbide substrates are manufactured with a range of interface geometries and metallurgical properties to meet the requirements for PDC cutters.

Hyperion, with its in-house carbide powder production and modern sintering process control, is able to maintain key carbide substrate properties, specifically magnetic saturation and coercivity. These properties are extremely consistent within a batch and across different batches.

We can produce carbide substrates with high tolerances on dimensional and metallurgical properties.  The inserts utilize complex interface geometries that can help the finished bit sustain higher impacts without damage.  

Your Hyperion sales person can offer their expertise in selecting the products best suited to solve your needs.
