Custom-Made Tungsten Carbide Preforms
Basic Carbide’s capabilities include both custom-made preforms and custom carbide grades when required.
- Our engineering team creates detailed models for your specified preforms. Once engineered, our computerized models help maintain product consistency and allow for fast turnaround on repeat orders.
- Our blending and testing services take raw materials and create high-quality carbide grades for state-of-the-art tooling and industrial production.
- Pressing, shaping, and sintering produces very hard cemented carbide blanks and preforms ready to be worked into finished tools.
Our quality assurance protocols include a visual check along with dimensional and metallurgical inspection prior to packaging and shipping.
Basic Carbide has the capability to produce preforms of approximately 20 inches (508 mm) in diameter and up to 44 inches (1117.60 mm) in length.
Our hydraulic press plant gives us the capability to produce high volume runs while being competitive globally.
Exact limits depend on the configuration of the part to be produced.
Basic Carbide produces high-quantity runs for select parts. The configuration and size of the part determine its suitability for mechanical pressing.
Tooling charges may apply if the application of specialized tooling is necessary.
Special Requests and Processing
We often perform special processing, such as installing soft plugs for tapping, cobalt-treating surfaces to facilitate brazing, special sintering for Wire E.D.M. processing, and sinter-H.I.P. processing.
When needed, Basic Carbide produces custom grades of carbide for interested customers.
Custom blending requires a minimum quantity or total weight to be produced. Customers may also inquire regarding left-over custom grade lots.
In addition to these capabilities, Basic Carbide provides fast quotes and delivers rush turnaround of parts for urgent orders. We are limited only in that all quality assurance processes are followed, no matter the situation.
