Durable Mining Tools
The mining industry may represent the world’s most demanding use of carbide tools. Modern drills must bore through miles of rock, enduring high temperatures, deformation, impact, and more.
Basic Carbide has the capability of manufacturing a wide range of parts and tooling for the mining industry, from small mining bits up to large components.
We’ve developed a wide range of grades designed for wear applications and heavy-impact, and since these properties are inversely related, Basic Carbide works with customers to select the proper grade to maximize part performance.
At Basic Carbide, our tungsten carbide preforms and blanks are graded to serve the extreme wear applications of today’s mining industry, including the need for complicated, difficult to machine, and specialty tool blanks.
Tungsten carbide is the number one choice in mining for cutting and drilling tools, as well as for use in any application where a durable contact insert is called for. Since the introduction of tungsten carbide tools in the mining industry, miners have been able to do their jobs faster, longer, and with much less breakage.
Tungsten carbide has unique properties that allow it to significantly outlast tool steel under a variety of tough conditions. In applications where tools are subjected to deflection, heavy loading and extreme wear, tungsten carbide does the job.
