As a manufacturer of semi-finished tooling for progressive stamping die components, punches and EDM blocks, General Carbide offers a wide range of carbide grades for your application. Some grades are corrosion resistant and others have tantalum carbide, which acts as a lubricant when galling is an issue.
Our Technical Sales Engineers can help you choose the best tooling based on the thickness and geometry of the material you’re stamping.
Customers worldwide use our punch and die components. We also supply custom-shaped preform blanks ready for finishing. All parts are sinter-HIPed and stress relieved using proprietary thermal cycles, enabling us to guarantee our parts against cracking during WEDM. As a result, you can achieve longer run times on your production floor.
