de-brazed carbide tooth from steel body of pavement cutting tool

Carbide-tipped tools are commonly used in a variety of applications that require their hardness and durability. Tools for use in these applications are typically made from tungsten carbide, which is a tough material that can withstand high-impact forces and wear. A customer is looking for a faster and more reliable way to replace the carbide tips of the pavement cutting tool. The following de-brazing test shows how the customer can use induction heating for fast and repeatable de-brazing.


Replace torch de-brazing of the pavement cutting tool head of the road milling machine with induction de-brazing. The tip of the tool is made from carbide, and the body is made from steel.

Industry: Automotive & Transportation

Equipment: The de-brazing was done with an UltraHeat W Series 10kW Induction System.


The size of the heated carbide tip is 1.27 cm (0.5 inches). The carbide tip and the joint to the steel body are quickly heated with an induction heating coil, and the tip is manually removed.


Induction heating will increase:

  • the productivity
  • quality
  • repeatability of the process

The main benefits of integrating induction heating are precise control of the time and temperature and employee safety.
