Cadence can supply solid carbide blades and machine knives in many shapes and sizes.
With optimum grade selection, sub micron grain size tungsten carbide blades can be sharpened to a razor edge without the inherent brittleness frequently associated with conventional carbide. Although not as shock-resistant as steel, carbide is extremely wear-resistant, with hardness equivalent to Rc 75-80. Carbide blade life of at least 50X conventional blade steels can be expected if chipping and breakage is avoided.
Cadence stands ready to assist you in achieving the optimum balance of properties that will allow you to get maximum performance from your carbide blades.
