Tungsten Carbide Ring


Tungsten Carbide Rolls

The production line of rolls in our company has adopted paraffin process combining with spray drying technology up-to-date in the world to ensure the properties of the raw material. With 500-ton Alpha presses imported from U.S.A., Sinter hip furnace from U.S.A. and Germany and ASEA HIP from Sweden. Our company is capable to produce all kinds of roll blanks with improved microstructure and properties. The Wendit Special Grinder (for grinding rolls) and groove grinder, made in Germany, also guarantee the size accuracy of finished rolls. Our company own proprietary technical know-how in producing rolls and the company quality standard Q/62071126-8 108.1-2006 guarantee the quality of rolls.

The roll outer diameter is up to 500mm and thickness 250mm. Special rolls are available upon request.



Application of tungsten carbide roll

With high strength, high hardness and good wear rear resistance, tungsten carbide rolls (composed of WC, Co, Ni and other rare metals) are developed for high-speed wire rolling. To make the best used of carbide rolls, attention should be paid to things listed below:


  • Choice of Grade

Choose the appropriate grades for different stands according to the groove shape rolling speed.

  • Installation of Rolls

Before installation, cheek the roll, tapered housing and roller. The match between roll, roller and tapered housing should not be tight or loose. The same grade is recommended for the same stand.

  • Cooling of Rolls

Rolls must be cooled down to prevent thermal fatigue crack and to prolong the service life. 46 bar cooling water pressure is recommended for finishing stands, and flow quantity of 250-300L/min, per pass is required. The water jet angle and the distribution of nozzles are shown as follows:
