Indispensable: Tungsten in industry
The properties of tungsten – in particular its high boiling and melting point of 3,422 °C and its high density of 19.25 grams per cm³ – bring precision to manufacturing and provide advantages in many industries. Whether tungsten is used as a flywheel mass, counterweight or vibration damping: in aviation, automotive, sports and telecommunications technology, tungsten and products made of tungsten alloys are indispensable. In addition, tungsten is used in medical technology and as a substitute for lead.
Tungsten has the highest melting point of all metals – it has a melting point of 3,422 °C. Tungsten is irreplaceable when high temperatures stress the material. At temperatures between 1,000 and 1,600°C, semi-finished products obtain their basic shape by means of forging, round hammering or rolling. Work pieces with very low tolerances can be manufactured by a subsequent surface grinding operation.
Alloy additives can be used to influence the chemical, physical and mechanical properties of our semi-finished and finished parts. Depending on the required application, an alloy can be chosen that has optimal parameters in terms of resistance, interaction, temperature behaviour, material properties, conductivity and machinability.
