A durable, industrial steel, carbide is used to make parts in a variety of machining applications. Also known as tungsten carbide, this essential element contains equal parts tungsten and carbon atoms, making it one of the strongest metals on Earth. For this reason, carbide is often applied to bushings, dies, gages and other machining parts. Explore the benefits that carbide bushings have to offer below, and then contact Endurance Carbide to see what we can do for you.
Carbide bushings are resistant to wear.
Tungsten is known for its high melting point and durability. It’s also resistant to corrosion, which is ideal for industrial and manufacturing use. Likewise, bushings made from carbide offer an outstanding shelf life. That means you’ll spend less time switching out worn-down bushings, and more time getting the job done.
Carbide bushings help lower production costs.
At first glance, it may seem that steel bushings offer significant savings. But when you factor in the amount of time you need to spend replacing them and lost production due to downtime, steel bushings will actually cost you more in the long run. Unlike steel bushings, tungsten carbide bushings last longer. Their exceptional resilience makes them a cost-effective solution in your machining applications.
Carbide bushings offer optimal performance.
Whether it’s applied to a cutting blade or to a bushing, tungsten carbide provides the performance you’ve been seeking. Regular steel bushings wear down fast, while carbide bushings maintain their form for an extended amount of time. It’s this performance that helps you stay on top of your production goals.
