Carbide blanks are essentially an unfinished carbide product that can be further modified or finished according to one’s requirement. It has immense potential for use in applications such as twist drills, end mills and in the production of rods and reamers. Since carbide is a metal that demonstrates extreme hardness (because it is obtained from sintering of carbide and other metals) it is in demand in several heavy duty applications.

Carbide blanks are often finished into a final product by means of grinding, drilling, polishing or certain other industrial processes. Such blanks are available in various types of sizes, shapes as well as designations. They are heavily used in various industries ranging from small and medium scale industries to heavy metal industries, such as manufacturing valve trim.

Following are the characteristics and uses of cemented carbide:

* They are obtained by combining and sintering carbide or carbides with bonding metals such as tungsten or cobalt. Since sintering involves binding together powdered metal with the use of high amounts of heat, the different metals bind together to create one strong component. And this can be used across various industries.

* Carbide blank is also used in order to manufacture drills. It is common knowledge that when two metals rub against each other, this process causes wear and tear in both the metals. But since carbide blank is strong enough to resist such wear and tear, it is used in the manufacture of drills. The threaded metal tip that you see at the end of a drilling machine is usually manufactured from carbide blank.

* Cemented carbide is also increasingly used in the manufacture of drills that are very thin but have enormous strength. For instance, when printed circuit boards meant for small electronic items such as cameras are to be drilled, carbide blank is used. The strength and durability of this metal ensures that a hole of the smallest diameter can be drilled perfectly.

* In addition, the strength that cemented carbide possesses makes it very useful when it comes to manufacturing cutting and lathing machines and tools. Such tools, even if they possess very less thickness, have a very high tensile strength and do not break or snap even while performing heavy duty cutting and lathing operations. This makes them very efficient across different types of industries.

* Depending on where they are to be used, these carbide blanks are available in various varieties—such as PCB drill blanks, blanks for end mills, ground round blanks and flat (or rod-shaped) blanks that can be then finished into various objects such as a valve trim.

These carbide blanks have been in use since over a century now and their demand has only seen an upward graph owing to their many advantageous properties. They were initially used in Germany and gradually, news of their utility aspect spread to other parts of the world, making them popular worldwide.
