Cemented Carbide Insert Blanks

Hyperion cemented carbide and cermet insert blanks

Hyperion Code: n/a

Description: Cemented carbide insert blanks are the basic building blocks of cemented carbide cutting tools, made of a mixture of tungsten carbide (WC) and cobalt (Co), which are sintered together at high temperatures. The tungsten carbide provides hardness and wear resistance, while the cobalt acts as a binder and gives the blanks their toughness. Hyperion Materials & Technologies provides preformed cemented carbide insert blanks tailored to each customer’s unique design. We offer three finishing options: as-sintered, top face and bottom face (T&B) ground, and T&B and periphery ground.

Cemented carbide insert blanks are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they can be coated with different materials to improve their performance in specific applications. They are used in a wide range of cutting tools, including drills, saws, milling cutters, and turning tools. They offer a unique combination of high hardness, toughness, wear resistance, excellent thermal conductivity, and chemical inertness.

We offer preformed cemented carbide insert blanks that can be customized and machined to the desired shape and size of the tool through computer-controlled milling machines. With state-of-the-art pressing and sintering technology, Hyperion can manufacture simple 2D insert blanks and a full range of premium 3D custom-made, near-net-shape insert blanks in cemented tungsten carbide.

Through advanced manufacturing technology, we can offer a wide range of geometries with a variety of ground finishes as an option (top face and bottom face (T&B) ground and T&B and periphery ground). We also offer Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coatings to enhance the performance of the finished tool and extend its lifespan.

Our portfolio includes a comprehensive selection of cemented carbide grades qualified with various coatings and available in the industry for different applications.
