What Is Tungsten Alloy Machining?

At ProtoTech Machining, we are offering tungsten heavy alloy machining for various industries, including automotive, aerospace, and other industries. Tungsten is difficult to machine due to its extreme hardness, while its engineering properties are similar to steel, making it possible to alloy with various elements, including copper, nickel, and iron, creating a huge variety of tungsten alloy grades.

We create tungsten alloys using standard tools and equipment for drilling, turning, milling, and tapping. Also, it can be painted and plated to increase corrosion protection. We recommend C-2 Grade carbide tooling for milling, turning, and drilling to meet accuracy and precision for complex geometries and different features when machining tungsten alloys, including the curves, holes, and corners. We use only state-of-the-art facilities and diverse tool sets to design tungsten alloy parts, ensuring maximized production for speed and efficiency.
