Cowles Tool  


When it comes to quality carbide wear parts, Cowles Tool has been setting the standard in the industry for over 50 years. Whether you need workrest blades for centerless grinding, using carbide wear liners in the refactories industry, or need belt scrapers for a current or upcoming project, you are guranteed to see the Cowles Tool difference in the products that you need.  


We use the highest quality carbide and manufacture our products to your individual requirements. Cowles Tool views all of our customers as partners in production not just a purchaser of our products.

Carbide Wear Parts

Wear Liners

Our tungsten carbide inlaid wear liners used in the refactory industry or other applications require a longer lasting wear surface.  Cowles Tool carbide liners not only increase the durability of your liners, they also boost productivity due to less maintenance and decreased machine downtime.  Our capabilities include the repair and regrinding of your liners when they become damaged or become too rough to use.


• Tungsten Carbide inlay can withstand the harsh demands required in the manufacturing of

super abrasive bricks

• By using a higher grade of tungsten carbide than our competitors, our liners wear

better while reducing machine downtime and increasing productivity

• Our liners have considerably less pieces of carbide per liner, which reduces the chances of any pieces

becoming unsecured while in use

Workrest Blades

Belt Scrapers (Radius Blades)


Our tungsten carbide inlaid conveyer belt scrapers are made to customers specification for use in the coal and mining industries.
