In the first process cycle, the cemented-carbide parts are de-waxed. Next, the components are vacuum sintered at temperatures of about 1400°C (2552°F). In the final step, the components are compacted under high gas pressure to achieve a porous-free material structure. The high-pressure compacting step is the key to securing the highest mechanical properties of the cemented-carbide components for tools such as drills or cutters.
