Penn United Carbide, a division of Penn United Technologies, manufactures assemblies of tungsten carbide and a customer specified metal alloy. These assemblies are used as a common method of overcoming certain design challenges in mechanical designs from both a mechanical and cost perspective.
Joining tungsten carbide to a metal component is used to address manufacturing issues regarding fabrication, assembly, and cost. Brazing, gluing, and shrink fitting are all common assembly methods. Shrink fitting is the most common and offers the broadest range of mechanical function.
Penn United Carbide provides a full range of tungsten carbide and metal components as well as design assistance to successfully incorporate carbide and metal precision assemblies into all types of challenging applications.
