MEETYOU CARBIDE produces a wide range of excellent tungsten carbide products (especially carbide rods, carbide blanks, carbide flat bar, tungsten carbide cold heading dies and tungsten carbide wire drawing dies), both standard and customized in accordance with customers’ needs. For example, in the past few years, we helped many companies to choose the best grade for their application, resulting in more effective and durable tools.In the past few years, compared with other tungsten carbide rod suppliers, we helped many companies to choose the best grade for their application, resulting in more effective and durable tools. For example, we developed MT12S grade which is consisted of 12% Cobalt with grain size under 0.6um WC as a replacement for previous 0.8um grain size for a carbide cutting tool company, helping them make harder and stronger tool. Plus, we also reduce the cost of material by more than 5%. As a tungsten carbide supplier, we will do our best.

 Also, product quality and process efficiency are examined by the strictest international standards. Strict control of our raw material supply chains and 100% traceability for every product batch throughout the entire manufacturing process.

 What is tungsten carbide rod?

Cemented carbide rods are an alloy product made by a powder metallurgy process.

The main characteristics of cemented carbide rods are stable mechanical properties, easy welding, high wear resistance and perfect impact resistance. Carbide rod is usually superior for the cutting of tough materials such as carbon steel or stainless steel, as well as in situations where other cutting tools would wear away faster, such as high-quantity production runs.

Applications of tungsten carbide rods

 Carbide rods are mainly used for drills, end mills, and reamer. It can also be used for cutting, stamping and measuring tools. It is used in the paper, packaging, printing, and non-ferrous metal processing industries. In addition, it is also widely used in the processing of high-speed steel tools, carbide milling cutters, carbide tools, carbide drills, high-speed steel, carbide tools, etc. Carbide rods can be used not only for cutting and drilling tools but also for input needles, various roll wore parts and structural materials. In addition, it can be used in many fields, such as machinery, chemical, petroleum, metallurgy, electronics and defense industries

 Three production models

Tungsten Carbide Rod Supplier In China 1


Extrusion is the most popular method of producing carbide rods. It is a very practical way to manufacture long carbide rods like 330mm.310mm and 500mm, etc. However, its time-consuming drying process is the weakness that we have to pay attention to.

Automatic Press

Automatic pressing is the most effective ways to press short sizes like 6*50,10*75,16*100, etc. It can save cost from cutting carbide rods and it doesn’t need time to dry. So the lead time is faster than extrusion. On the other hand, long rods cannot be manufactured by this method.

Cold Isostatic Press

Cold isostatic press(CIP) is the latest technology of making carbide rods. Because it can make long bars like 400mm but it doesn’t require wax like extrusion, so it doesn’t need time to dry, either. This is the best option when making big diameters like 30mm and 40mm.
