What’s the price difference between whole-carbide punches and brazed-carbide punches?2023-08-04T08:45:20+00:00

The price difference between whole-carbide punches and brazed-carbide punches for nail making may vary depending on the specific type, size, and supplier. However, in general, whole-carbide punches are typically more expensive than brazed-carbide punches. Some customers choose to order the brazed one due to the head being the working area.

Nail-making punches require high wear resistance and toughness to withstand the continuous impact and pressure during production.

Brazed-carbide punches have a steel body with a carbide tip that is brazed onto the end. They are less expensive to produce than whole-carbide punches since only the tip is made of carbide, and the steel body is less expensive.

What is the price difference between carbide inserts for nail cutters and brazed carbide nail cutters?2023-08-04T08:44:18+00:00

In general, carbide inserts for nail cutters tend to be less expensive than brazed carbide nail cutters because they are smaller and require less carbide material. Carbide inserts are typically used to replace the worn or damaged cutting edges of existing nail cutters, rather than as a standalone tool.

However, the specific price difference between these two types of tools will depend on the size and specifications of the tool, as well as the supplier and other market factors. It’s always a good idea to compare prices from multiple suppliers to get the best deal.

Can nail gripper dies to be sharpened or repaired?2023-08-04T08:41:48+00:00

In some cases, nail gripper dies made of brazed carbide can be sharpened or repaired if they become dull or damaged. However, this process can be complex and requires specialized equipment and expertise.

Carbide is a very hard and durable material, but it can be brittle and may chip or crack if not handled properly. Sharpening or repairing a nail gripper die typically involves removing the damaged or worn carbide teeth and replacing them with new ones.

It’s essential to have the repair or sharpening work done by a professional with experience in working with carbide materials. Attempting to repair or sharpen the die yourself or using an inexperienced technician could result in further damage to the die and compromise its performance.

In some cases, it may be more cost-effective to replace the die if it becomes worn or damaged beyond repair.
