Tungsten heavy alloy is increasingly adopted in tungsten alloy defense as the raw material to make parts of military products, such as bullet, armor and shells, shrapnel head, grenade, hunting gun, bullet warheads, bulletproof vehicles, tank panzers, cannons, firearms, etc. A major use for tungsten heavy alloy is in kinetic energy penetrators, where they are in direct competition with depleted uranium (DU).
A significant mass of tungsten has been used to produce 5.56 mm ammunition for use at military training facilities as a substitute for lead bullets. The mass of tungsten used in fixed target/fixed firing position ranges has produced soils that are expected to contain tungsten in the percent by mass concentrations, in addition to legacy lead from past training.
Application of tungsten alloy swaging rod on the Military field:
Tungsten alloy swaging rod can be widely use in military defense, such as depleted uranium penetrators, bullet, armor piercing, rifle bullet, snipe rifle penetrator, etc.
Process of tungsten alloy swaging rod:
4). Heat treatment
Repeated heat treatment and swaging is need at least several times.
In this way, products can be improved at tensile strength as well decrease elongation and impact toughness of products.
We do well on the customzied heavey tungsten alloy parts for defence application , welcome to enquire.
