Tungsten Carbide Forming Rolls
18th June 2007
With the cost of tungsten escalating to new heights on the global resource market, any alternative method for reduction in running costs of solid tungsten carbide forming rolls is worthy of a listening ear!
A steel blank is rough machined and a 60% tungsten carbide overlay is applied to the outside diameter of the blank to the required thickness. This overlay is applied using powder as the feedstock through a Plasma Transferred Arc System. The overlay is then diamond ground to the required profile.
