There are many benefits to having long-term work experience within the same company. This good period of work experience will greatly increase the knowledge, personal attributes and skills...
Tungco Inc. began making drill bits for the mining and construction industry in 1987. In 1996, this business was separated from Tungco and Cuda Tools, Inc. was formed.
Being a global company that specializes in tungsten carbide reclamation, we buy all types of shapes, sizes, and quantities of scrap. I am relatively new to the industry, so one of my favorite things to do...
Depending on applications, you use a more coarse grit size for example a rock quarry and a fine material in sandy applications.
Always try to grind the weld area to clean, white metal. Many shops do not clean to save time and money. The surface does not have to be perfect, but at least touch the surface.
Depending on feed rate and welder, you can weld 1 inch wide by 20 inches long with 1 pound of grit.
The most versatile wire size is .045 DIA. wire. This wire can be used with the higher voltage and lower amps to make thinner weld beads with deep penetration. The best wires are triple or double de-oxidized (Aluminum, Zirconium, Titanium). They make a very clean puddle for the carbide to drop though and have a high tolerance for dirty base metal surfaces. Other wires can be used, for example, high-Chrome/High Carbon, small-diameter hardfacing wires.
Argon/Oxygen (2%) is the most popular mix. Pure Argon can be used, however it is colder. 75/25 (75% Argon/ 25% Carbon Dioxide) is another choice. Pure CO2 is the cheapest gas and can be used with higher voltage. In fact, the higher the voltage, the flatter the bead will be. All gases can be used with high or low voltage:
Included in the system are the following:
Material is bagged and placed into bucket with lid. Then placed in box taped up or palletized. Moisture inhibitors are also placed in bag of material when sent international.
Yes, we do ship internationally.
