Tungsten Carbide metal cutting tools for the precision engineering industry
Tungsten Carbide indexable Insert metalcutting tooling systemHardmet Associates have a wide range of tooling available for turning, boring, drilling, threading, parting and grooving of metals.
The milling range includes a comprehensive programme of milling cutters and inserts, together with mould and die tooling.
Manufacturing of ISO Tungsten Carbide and Cermet inserts and holders is our standard range. Special tooling to customers' designs is also part of the service with Hardmet - manufacturing inserts and tooling for OEM world class brands. We also have our own in house CVD and PVD coating facility.
Tungsten Carbide finished and preformed rotary toolsHardmet is a preferred supplier of Tungsten Carbide performs and finished round tool products. Performs have less grind stock to remove; our preformed round tool blanks are used in the production of - coolant hole tools, endmills/slot drills, burrs, reamers, step tools and combination tools. All our rotary tool performs are either isostatically or mechanically pressed, which eliminates metallurgical imperfections.
Tungsten Carbide rod products
Typically, the solid rods we manufacture range between Ø1.5mm and Ø40mm, with an overall length of 330mm, and are available 'as sintered' or ground h6.

Our Tungsten Carbide rectangular strip products are manufactured with various cross sections between 2mm and 30mm and are typically 335mm long.
Many of our Tungsten Carbide rod and strip ranges are manufactured in micrograin, sub-micron and medium grain grade options, covering application areas K10 to K30, and additionally there is a P25/P40 option available by quotation.
Our standard micrograin Tungsten Carbide rod products are suitable for manufacturing rotary tooling for metalworking in steels and non ferrous materials, and for the woodworking industry. The sub-micron material is especially suited to high speed machining and the medium grain material for hardworking tools, where extra strength and stability are require - particularly on older machine tools.
