Pinpoint Carbide

This structure is pre-heat treated and cold rolled. It is used extensively for band saw and other cutting applications. Pinpoint carbide can have teeth punched, milled or ground easily at high hardness levels. Pulse hardening of the tips greatly enhances cutting properties. It responds well to heat treatment, offering excellent fatigue and wear properties.

Pinpoint Carbide is available in the following grades:
TRM-37 (AISI-1086M), TRM-54 (AISI-1095), TRM-64 (BARCOIDŽ)

SIZE RANGES OF PINPOINT CARBIDE:
