Materials for Automotive
Our cemented carbide has great dimensional stability due to a high Young's modulus and compressive strength while featuring a low coefficient of thermal expansion.
The characteristics of cemented carbide make it a viable alternative to steel, especially in electric vehicles. Our cemented carbide and polycrystalline diamond (PCD) wire dies are industry leading for drawing radial tire steel cords.
Hyperion's Barcelona facility has IATF 16949:2016 certification for manufacturing cemented carbide components.
Products that serve the automotive industry:
Cemented carbide rods, with and without coolant channels, for drills and end mills
Cemented carbide wear parts for applications including shafts, bushings, pins, valve balls, and actuators
Advanced protection through our proprietary diamond composite coatings
PCD/PCBN blanks and cut shapes for inserts and round tools in metal cutting
Carbide and PCD die blanks to rough core dies and diamond compounds for polishing of wire drawing dies
