Carbide Punches are kinds of special punches mainly used for small stamping tool presses, progressive dies or transfer dies. carbide punch manufacturers professionally produce carbide punches of various custom shapes.
Carbide Punches as its name mentioned are made of tungsten carbide materials. Or called WC or cemented carbide hard metal materials.
Tungsten carbide punches are used with stamping die inserts, and die strippers together as a set of punch-forming block assemblies.
As we know, carbide is a difficult-to-cut material. So it needs special equipment to process and machine the material.
To make the carbide punches, a manufacturer should have profile grinding machines, plane surface grinding machines, JG grinding machines, Wire-Cut EDM and Sinker EDM. These are not normal machines, except for the plane grinder, one of them costs more than 140 thousand US dollars. A set of equipment may cost more than 700 thousand US dollars.
When we have these high-end machining and grinding machines, we also need experienced CNC machinists to operate them.
Talking about the mechanical machining technology, we know that CNC milling is fast by 3-axis, 4-axis, or 5-axis high-speed milling machine, CNC turning is also the same by NC lathes. But for the EDM and Grinding, they are slow work. But slow work can get better quality. Especially for grinding, it may be the slowest work in the various kinds of machining technologies. But it can get excellent surface roughness and excellent tolerance.
A carbide punches manufacturer knows the key about this. We need to train sophisticated CNC machinists and need to use world-advanced machining equipment. Then we can do the job well.
