Tungsten Heavy Alloy Form Factors
Elmet Technologies manufactures tungsten heavy alloy in various forms – from WHA blocks, rods (sintered or swaged), shaped parts, bars, sheet, plate, disks and more. Elmet has a large and growing inventory of standard molds and WHA sizes, available “rough as sintered” or machined to provide tighter tolerances.
Tungsten Heavy Alloy – Form Factors
Elmet Technologies presses and sinters high-quality tungsten heavy alloy (WHA) blocks, rods, and shaped parts. Sintered WHA blanks can be further rolled or swaged by Elmet to produce plates, sheets, and rods with ultimate tensile strengths exceeding 180 ksi (1240 MPa) and elongations exceeding 5%. Elmet also precision machines WHA parts for use as ballast weights, radiation shields, boring bars, ordnance components, and other components that require high density and good ductility.
PRESSED AND SINTERED PARTS:
Elmet has industry-leading expertise and experience in pressing and sintering ASTM B-777 material. We offer both round and rectangle parts in the pressed and sintered state – which helps reduce cost to our customers. Leading companies purchase Elmet-made tungsten heavy alloy material for applications such as ballast weights, radiation shields, boring bars, ordnance components and other components requiring high density and good ductility. Please visit our online store for readily available WHA materials, here or contact Elmet to discuss your application.
WHA HOT ROLLED PLATE AND SHEET PRODUCTS:
Elmet has been hot rolling pure tungsten and molybdenum for over 80 years. We are the only US-owned tungsten producer with hot rolling capabilities. Elmet offers a range of tungsten heavy alloy plate and tungsten heavy alloy sheet products in varying thickness and length and per our customer request. As with all of our materials, our WHA plate and sheet begins as metal powder. It is pressed into ingots, sintered, and then rolled. The process enables us to tailor the product to meet specific customer material and/or performance requirements to ensure optimal performance in your application.
WHA HOT SWAGED RODS WITH ENHANCED MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
Elmet is a leader of providing Tungsten Heavy Alloy (WHA) hot swaged rod material with enhanced properties. Elmet can adjust swaging and heat-treating conditions to produce WHA rods with specific combinations of strength and ductility.
Swaged Rods are produced in diameters <.25” to >1” based on customer requirements.
