For the superior strength of the teeth to be achieved, the best quality materials must be used. The best way to tell if the superior strength of the teeth is achieved by having a tungsten carbide insert for the tip while the body should be forged and carbon alloy steel. These are kind of material that offers incredible resistance to wear and abrasion thus they don’t wear down quickly.
Choice of Tip or Joint
There various types of tips depending on the nature of the joint that used in combining carbide insert and steel body. There are types of tips or joints used for the rock auger teeth. They include a plug, cap, and a narrow bottom tip. For the plug, the carbide tip is physically locked onto the steel body, and thus it may fail to deliver in extremely tough conditions. Plug is the most known type joint since it relies in on braze to strengthen the joint but it cab also break under extreme conditions. Third and most recommended is the narrow bottom.
