Since tungsten metal is hard to be machined,the common remote process could not make it perfect. But Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is an ideal manufacture process to making tungsten alloy cubes. MIM is suitable to manufacture the metal and ceramic component with the property of complex three-dimensional structure, high density, high rigidity, high precision, etc.. The smaller, more precise, more complex, MIM have more advantage, the density comes 95%-98%. The high density of WHAs makes it possible to significantly reduce the physical size of components. This in turn, gives 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, WHAs 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 advantages of Metal Injection Molding
Density: Typically 95-98% of wrought material. Mechanical Properties - Comparable to wrought alloys of similar composition. Complexity - Geometries comparable to plastic injection molding. Surface Finish: As processed, 32 ram or better. Corrosion Resistance - Comparable to wrought alloys of similar composition. Alloy Selection - Many ferrous, nickel-based and copper-based alloys available.
