To Manufacture IGETALLOY Products

image: 1. Raw Material Powder

Raw Material Powder

Using a selection raw material powders including tungsten carbide (WC) and cobalt (Co).

image: 2. Mix


A mixer is used to mix two or more kinds of powder with liquid evenly.

image: 3. Granulation


The mixed liquid is ejected through a nozzle into a high temperature gas atmosphere for drying, thus producing the completed granular powder.

image: 4. Press


The completed powder is filled into the mold of a pressing machine and the configured shape is formed by applying pressure.

image: 5. Sinter


Heating the pressed shape for a certain period of time at high temperature produces cemented carbide (sintered compact).

image: 6. Finish


The production is completed after going through finish grinding, with a diamond grinding wheel, and final inspection process.
