Carbide Blanks & Preforms

H. B. Carbide has become the industry leader in top quality tungsten carbide rod, blanks, and preforms. We use high quality materials and high-tech computer controlled vacuum furnaces to produce a variety of cemented carbide preforms for many specialized applications. Applications include:

Save Time and Increase Productivity

Our preform expertise allows for major portions of carbide to be removed while still in the green state. Compared to the hard state, drilling of coolant holes, prefluting, and grinding different diameters happens in a fraction of the time. We leave a minimal amount of grind stock which saves you grinding wheel life, and increases machine capacity. All of these features save you money. Blanks include:

  • Flats
  • Chamfers
  • Keyways
  • PCD Pockets
  • Preformed sharpening angles
  • Straight Flutes
  • Spiral Flutes
  • Coolant holes (in any location)
  • Stepped Diameters
  • Centers (male or female)
