Cemented Carbide Nib Blanks
Cemented carbide nib blanks are made of tungsten carbide and a metallic binder, such as cobalt. It is commonly used in wire drawing, which reduces the diameter of a metal wire by pulling it through a series of dies with decreasing hole sizes.
Carbide nib blanks come into direct contact with the wire as it passes through the die. The nibs are designed to withstand the high pressure and wear of the wire drawing process while maintaining their shape and size over time.
Using carbide nibs in wire drawing offers several advantages over other materials, such as longer tool life, reduced downtime, and improved wire surface finish. They can also draw a wide range of metals, including steel, copper, and aluminum. Overall, cemented carbide nibs are essential for the wire drawing industry.
Carbide Nib Blanks Applications
Cemented carbide nib blanks are a versatile tool used in various industrial applications requiring high wear resistance, hardness, and toughness. The commonly drawn wires using carbide nibs include steel wires, copper wires, aluminum wires, and other metals.
The drawing process produces wires of various diameters for various applications, such as electrical wiring, cables, springs, and fasteners. During the wire drawing process, the wire is pulled through a series of dies with decreasing hole sizes, and carbide nibs are used as a part of the drawing dies to reduce the diameter of the wire. The carbide nibs come into direct contact with the wire and must withstand the process's high pressure and wear.
