It is difficult to manufacture tungsten alloy cubes with ordinary manufacturing techniques, however our Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is an ideal manufacturing process. MIM is suitable for the manufacturing of metal and ceramic components thanks to its complex three-dimensional structure, high density, high rigidity, high precision, etc.
MIM can also be used in the manufacture of smaller, more precise, more complex parts. The density of tungsten alloys made by the MIM method is higher than pure tungsten with 95%-98% density. The high density of it makes it possible to significantly reduce the physical size of its components, which makes it perfect for military applications. This in turn gives the product the benefit of greater control of weight distribution and increases the sensitivity of controlling mechanisms. Where a large mass must be housed within a restricted area, tungsten alloy cubes are the ideal material.
What Is Metal Injection Molding?
Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a growth technology for manufacturing complex-shaped, high-volume metal or alloy parts. Metal Injection Molding (MIM) parts can be produced from ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys.
The Manufacturing Process for Tungsten Alloy Cubes:
Mix tungsten powder and binder → Injection molding → Rebinding →Sintering→Tungsten alloy cubes
The Advantages of Metal Injection Molding:
High Density – Density of tungsten alloy made by MIM method is higher than wrought material with 95%-98%.
Mechanical Properties – similar to wrought alloys with same composition.
Complexity – geometries comparable to plastic injection molding.
Surface Finish: as processed, 32 Ram or better.
Corrosion Resistance – similar to wrought alloys with same composition.
Applicability- Many ferrous, nickel-based and copper-based alloys are available.
All kinds of tungsten alloy military cubes and counterweight cubes can be provided by Agescan International at your specific requirements.
