Tungsten alloy tips are small in volume and very dense, which means they can be used in all fields that rely on small but heavy parts. Tungsten heavy alloy tips can be used as extremely precise counterweights for racecars, boats, yachts; sailboats, airplanes, helicopters, rockets, and tanks. Precision instrument fields can also benefit from our tungsten heavy alloy tips, as they are also widely used in mobile phone vibrators, clock cubes, self-winding watches, anti-vibration toll holders, flywheel weights, etc.
Application of Tungsten Alloy Tips
Tungsten alloy tips can be used as vibrators for clock or mobile phones. When mobile phones or clocks vibrate, there is an eccentric motion, which is caused by a motor connected to vibrating components. In this case, components with good wear resistance and high specific gravity are required.
Space to place counterweights can be very limited. Tungsten alloy, with its density between 16.5/ cm 3 and 18.5/cm3 seems to be a perfect solution. With 50 percent higher density than lead and much higher than steel, it is an ideal material for counterweight. Tungsten alloy tips provided by Agescan International Inc. can prolong a counterweight’s life because of its wear resistance.
In addition, tungsten heavy alloy tips are an environmentally friendly and non-toxic alternative to other materials. Tungsten alloy can be easily machined into almost any shape and has good corrosion resistance. Tungsten alloy tips are incorporated into the pitch control system of many propeller designs as a fail-safe device to prevent over-speeding. What is more, tungsten heavy alloy tips are incorporated into rotating flywheels of gyroscopic controls to store kinetic energy. Tungsten alloy tips are used to adjust the center of gravity of the triangle and the frequency of oscillation in laser beams.
