Advantages of High-Performance Carbide Strip Blanks


High-performance carbide strip blanks are pre-shaped bars of cemented carbide material designed to make cutting tools and wear parts for toolmakers. Available with or without chamfer and in a wide range of carbide grades, high-performance strip blanks are ideally suited for reamers, knives, cutters, and several free-forming applications.

Manufactured in industry-leading grades, high-performance tungsten carbide strip blanks are a smart investment for toolmakers. They provide exceptional hardness, wear resistance, and durability to metal, wood, and concrete tool applications, making them a valuable material for tool fabrication.

High-performance carbide strip blanks enhance tool productivity and minimize inspections. They also provide several advantages, such as reducing quality claims, stock material, and operating costs. By ensuring consistent quality and performance, these carbide blanks prove their worth. Moreover, Hyperion’s engineering experts can provide tailored materials and designs to meet specific challenges.


Long Tool Life & Consistent Quality

Due to its exceptional carbide grade materials, high-performance tungsten carbide strip blanks ensure incredible cutting performance and wear resistance. It offers a cutting edge that stays sharper for longer, allowing the tool to perform at its best for extended periods, translating to a longer tool life and more consistent cutting material. Tungsten strip blanks contain materials that can be tailored to meet specific toolmakers’ designs to meet application-specific challenges.


Streamline Your Manufacturing Process


High-performance strip blanks are designed to make toolmakers' lives easier. These pre-shaped tool blanks reduce residual stress, generate less waste, create a stronger cutting edge, and improve processing time. With three standard profiles to choose from (rectangular, single chamfer, and double chamfer), these tungsten strip blanks save time and money during the manufacturing process while enhancing the finished tool's performance. Toolmakers can also select chamfer options to streamline their process further.


High Performance Carbide Strip Blanks Applications and Industries


The versatility of carbide strip blanks shines through their applications across various industries, including automotive, shipbuilding, woodworking, and nuclear power. These industries require tools that utilize carbide strip blanks to create unique tools and wear parts.




High-quality carbide-grade materials provide excellent hardness, toughness, wear, and heat resistance, making them a perfect solution for developing reamers. Reamers, cutting tools used in metalworking to refine existing holes, benefit from brazed-on carbide strip blanks that enable cutting specific shapes or replacing worn-out reamer knives. The advantages of brazed-on carbide strip blanks extend to other tools as well.


Knives / Cutters


Tungsten carbide strip blanks can be cut and ground to create industrial knives and cutters. They are best suited for high-volume production and when working on very hard applications where carbide’s superior wear resistance helps the cutting edge stay sharp for longer cuts and prevents chipping that softer steels might experience.


Free forming applications


High-performance carbide strip blanks provide excellent wear resistance for cutting edges of tools used in free-forming applications to create intricate components like LED frames.



High Performance Carbide Strip Blanks Properties


Hyperion carbide strip blanks are available in three standard designs: rectangle, single chamfer (30°), and double chamfer (30° and 45°). The standard carbide grade is Hyperion’s high-performance H10F, but strip blanks are available in additional application-specific carbide grades.
