Cemented Carbides describes all aspects related to the fabrication and examination of cemented carbides, starting from the production of raw materials and ending with final operations of surface finishing and coating. Basic phase diagrams of WC-based cemented carbides are presented and analyzed. Technological processes and equipment employed on different stages of the cemented carbide manufacture, including milling, granulation, pressing, sintering, surface finishing and deposing wear-resistant coatings are described, as well as modern techniques and instruments employed for controlling the microstructure and properties of cemented carbide.
