FAIRFIELD, New Jersey -- Wesgo Metals has developed a manufacturing process for the production of high-strength, high-purity alloys for drill bits.

The stringent process control allows for highly controlled purity and consistent braze temperatures, resulting in alloys that exhibit high tolerance and a more reliable drill bit, as required for brazing Polycrystalline diamond cutters (PDC) to Tungsten, the company says. Wesgo is able to tool and stamp in-house, as well as offer materials in ductile foil form.
