How much time can YOUR shop save today?
Gain significant savings in grinding & wire-EDM time with green-machined preforms from Quality Carbide Metals. This manufacturing process allows us to quickly remove larger amounts of material per cut than conventional hard-grinding or EDM. As a result, preformed geometries are much more affordable than hard-grinding or wire-EDM and they will streamline your tool manufacturing process.
QCMI can provide a blank with a form that is near the net shape of your final form. A fabricator simply grinds the grinding stock allowance (typically .010"-.030") off to bring the dimensions into tolerance and the tool is finished. Oftentimes, the finish and tolerance held by our green machining eliminates the need for nothing more than a sharpening of the edges. This is especially the case for our brazing tips. For those that prefer to start with a solid basic-shaped billet, we eliminate the need to pay for more material than is necessary by offering custom sizes at no additional tooling charge. Standard catalog blanks will become a waste of material & money when you discover how affordable our custom sizes and forms truly are!
