Tungsten alloy blocks
Tungsten alloy cubes are a block of tungsten alloys with high density, good compressive strength, oxidation resistance, good electrical and thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance and high density (16 g/cm3 to 18.5 g/cm3), much higher than nickel, titanium and lead. Tungsten alloy cubes also have good tensile strength, coefficient of expansion and large elasticity. It is used in the military as a filling material for armour-piercing ammunition cores and various counterweights.

Production process of tungsten cube
Tungsten alloy cubes are manufactured by a metal injection moulding process that produces superior precision components compared to conventional machining methods. Tolerances of 0.1 to 0.5 % can be achieved in the direct production of small, complex shaped tungsten blocks of approximately 0.1 to 200 grams compared to cast, powder metallurgical and metal injection moulded parts, as opposed to small tungsten cubes with densities of up to 95 to 97 %. Material utilisation with no or only trace machines can be as high as 97 %, while the general dimensions are manufactured with tight tolerances, good repeatability and adjustable material composition, high surface finish of fine parts, improved strength and heat treatment resistance.
Applications of tungsten cube
Tungsten alloy cubes are used in two main applications, counterweight and military applications.
Tungsten alloys have a high density twice that of equivalent steel and are not harmful to the environment compared to lead, so they are used in a wide range of counterweight applications. They are used in a wide range of counterweight applications, such as aircraft counterweights, submarine counterweights, racing car counterweights, weapons counterweights and sports equipment counterweights.
In the military, tungsten alloy cubes are used as a filling material for armour-piercing ammunition cores. Because of its high tensile strength, tungsten alloy cubes have a great impact on the performance of armour-piercing ammunition. Tungsten alloy can also be used as a counterweight for weapons to reduce the recoil of heavy weapons, etc.
