Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing

Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing

For a machine user, having the right wear parts is very crucial. Otherwise, it will be difficult to deliver with inferior quality wear parts. However, the market can sometimes disappoint, especially with the increase in of fake and counterfeit products. Low quality machine parts is another challenge buyers are having problems dealing with. At JYF machinery, we are here to provide the market with high quality aftermarket wear parts. We are best known not only for the quality of our wear parts but also the quality of our production processes. Tungsten carbide hardfacing is one of the wear parts production process that is making our products stand out.

What Is Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing?

The term ‘hardfacing’ in this context can briefly explain what we mean by tungsten carbide hard facing. It is a technique that used to harden wear parts to enhance their performance by increasing their cutting and wear resistance performance. In a nutshell, tungsten carbide hardfacing is a technique where a coat of tungsten carbide is applied on the base metal improve its hardness. The technique works for metals that cannot withstand demanding condition. With its high hardness, resistance to impact and strength properties, tungsten carbide provides a perfect coating that make tools more efficient.

The Process of Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing

Hardfacing is a process that usually come at the very end of a production process and in most cases, it’s done on the already manufactured wear parts. As you read above, the process enhances the hardness and strength of cutter tools to enable them to deliver in the most demanding conditions. We have made the process quite simple with our state of the art tungsten carbide hard facing equipment. What you need for the parts hard facing is just the base metal, tungsten carbide, and heat.

For the tungsten carbide brazing process to start, clean off the base metal thoroughly to remove foreign particles. The next step should be the melting of the tungsten carbide, which is, in this case, the coating metal.  To get the most of this technique, you must heat up the tungsten carbide up to about 1050°C. At this temperature, tungsten carbide will be in its molten form, is very form a coating on the base metal. Once the coating is made, the last step is doing some finishing on the surface to keep the parts in the best shape. With our tungsten carbide hardfacing equipment, the process is quite simple and high quality end product is a guarantee.

Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing Application

When it comes to tungsten hard facing, we use it on a vast a range of wear parts. With almost all the machines in the market working in demanding conditions, we have opted to use the technology to improve their performance. That is because of the hardness and strength that tungsten offers. We use the material mostly to enhance the cutter tools cutting performance. For instance, all the mulcher parts, drilling parts, and other machines’ cutter tools we are manufacturing, we have them hard faced. Apart from mulching and drilling parts, we can also have dredging teeth, mixer blades, mixer paddles, scraper blades, and so on hard faced.

Why Tungsten Carbide Hardfacing?

There are many reasons why tungsten carbide hardfacing is one of the crucial techniques in the machine wear parts manufacturing. The process has many benefits. First, tungsten carbide is one of the metals that offers incredible high hardness and strength. Wear parts producers use this hard facing to improve the hardness of tools from a soft base metal. Therefore, quality of tools is a guarantee. The second reason why tungsten carbide hardfacing is a crucial technique is enhancing the durability of the tools. Tungsten provides high resistance wear and abrasion hence a longer useful life.
