Yes, YG-type hard alloys, often referred to as cemented carbides or tungsten carbides, are versatile materials that can be used to process a wide range of materials, including cast iron, non-ferrous metals, and non-metallic materials. YG grades are common designations for tungsten carbide grades, and they are typically followed by specific numbers and letters indicating the composition, grain size, and other characteristics.

Here's how YG-type hard alloys can be used for different materials:

1. Cast Iron:

YG-type hard alloys are widely used for machining cast iron. Cast iron is a relatively abrasive material, and the hardness and wear resistance of YG grades make them suitable for cutting, milling, and drilling operations on cast iron components.

2. Non-Ferrous Metals:

YG-type hard alloys are also effective for processing non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper, brass, and bronze. These materials often require cutting tools with good thermal conductivity and wear resistance, which are characteristics of YG-type cemented carbides.

3. Non-Metallic Materials:

YG-type hard alloys can be used for machining non-metallic materials, including plastics, composites, and ceramics. The hardness of YG grades allows for precise cutting and shaping of these materials.

The selection of the specific YG grade depends on the exact requirements of the machining operation and the properties of the material being processed. Factors to consider include the hardness, abrasiveness, and thermal conductivity of the workpiece material. Additionally, coatings may be applied to YG-type hard alloys to enhance their performance in specific applications.

When choosing a YG grade for a particular material, it's advisable to consult with the hard alloy manufacturer or supplier. They can provide guidance based on the composition and properties of the specific YG-grade carbide and its suitability for the intended machining application.
