Cemented Carbide Rod Research

Hyperion Materials & Technologies is born out of GE, Diamond Innovations, and Sandvik Hard Materials. Heavy investment in pioneering research & development is our foundation, and partnership with our customers to create innovative technologies and materials solutions are the building blocks for our continued growth.

Hyperion continues to lead the way in developing cemented carbide rods to position our customers to win.  Over 130 engineers and technitions are driven to serve our customers, whether through new product development, performance testing, failure analysis, or process development.  Visit our R&D and Materials Analysis Laboratory pages for more information.

Hyperion cemented carbide rod analysis with coolant A vital component of Hyperion’s R&D capabilities is our state-of-the-art applications development center in Worthington, Ohio (USA).  Well equipped with machining centers and lathers, the center simulates real world applications of carbide rods, such as, slot milling and side milling.  Hyperion leverages this capability for product development, application development, training, and other technical support.

A sampling of our carbide rod research is available below.
