The TE-C3X is the world’s first truly mass produced, bulk, functionally graded hardmetal part. It uses separation of functions within a single component - drilling and joining - by spatial variation of properties in a single, axially pressed and liquid phase sintered hardmetal component. This newly developed PM technology is now being applied to other components that require locally adapted properties, such as cutting and wear parts.
