If the answer is yes, then here are some options to consider before choosing the right company to supply them to you.
If one is in the market for finding a tungsten supplier who specializes in Molybdenum, Tantalum, Niobium, and other industry required high-density metals as well as alloys, there are many things to keep in mind.
For starters, a tungsten carbide ball is made of very interesting chemicals. According to Wikipedia.com tungsten carbide is a chemical compound that contains equal portions of carbon atoms and tungsten. In its basic form, it can be pressed and formed into different shapes, serving many different purposes for our everyday use and needs. These shapes can be pressed and molded into shapes that can be used as cutting tools, abrasives, industrial machinery, instruments, and jewelry.
There are many different options for potential customers to choose from when considering tungsten supplies. With Tungsten Carbide, there are many options to choose from. Here is a list of options to consider:
- Tungsten carbide rolls
- Guide rollers
- Drawing Dies
- Gun Drill Products
- Rotary Burs
- Snowplowing Blades
- Pump Rings and Bushings
- Hot Abrasive Blasting Nozzles
- Hammer Tips for Horizontal-Tub Grinder
- Stone Working
- Semiconductor Plates
- Stamping Dies
- Ballpoint Pen Balls
- Anvil & Cylinders
Potential buyers should also keep tungsten carbide rolls, rings, rolling rings, and guide rollers are options to keep in mind.
When considering cemented carbide balls, there are many different sizes, alloys, grades and binders available. Grades of cemented carbide balls fall into four different categories; 5, 10, 25, and 100. A binder for these cemented carbide balls can be Cobalt or Nickel.
Cemented tungsten carbide balls and cemented titanium carbide balls can range in size from 0.5mm (0.020 inches) to 57.15 mm (2 1/2 inches). Tungsten carbide balls and cemented titanium carbide balls can be used for flow meters, valves, gauging, ballizing, linear bearings, ball screws, and in ballpoint pens.
There are other factors to keep in mind when purchasing your supplies like the quality of hardness, density (g/cc), transverse rupture strength (PSI), ultimate compressive strength (PSI), ultimate tensile strength (PSI), and ductility. Tensile strength, according to Wikipedia.com, is the capacity of a material to resist loads.
Prospective carbide ball purchasers should look at the grade and property of these materials. GU is the symbol for ultra-fine and sub-micron grain carbide. GK is the symbol for ultra-fine and sub-micron grain carbide in lieu of GU. GF is the symbol for carbide for general purpose of wear resistance and die forming. GD is the symbol for carbide for mining and construction. GT is the symbol for carbide — this is involved in steel cutting. Tungsten carbide supplier websites can provide this important chart.
Choosing the right company to handle the manufacturing of cemented tungsten carbide balls or another shape is a key to producing a quality product. And it is also important to find a company that believes in delivering a high level of precision and quality for one’s needs.
