Why CNC Bending Tungsten and When is CNC Bending Needed?

CNC Bending Tungsten is a precise metal forming process that utilizes computer numerical control (CNC) technology. It is specifically employed when there is a requirement for complex, accurate, and repeatable bending of Tungsten parts. Tungsten, known for its exceptional strength, high melting point, and excellent electrical conductivity, finds applications in various industries such as aerospace, electronics, and energy.

A Few Common Tungsten Materials or Tungsten Alloys

Tungsten can be found in various forms, including pure Tungsten and Tungsten alloys. Some common Tungsten materials or alloys include:

  1. Pure Tungsten (W)
  2. Tungsten-Copper (W-Cu) Alloy
  3. Tungsten-Nickel-Iron (W-Ni-Fe) Alloy

Technical Difficulties and Considerations for CNC Bending Tungsten

CNC Bending Tungsten presents specific technical difficulties and considerations that require careful attention to achieve optimal results. Some key points to consider are:

  1. Material Hardness: Tungsten is one of the hardest metals, which poses challenges during the bending process. Precision control of bending parameters, such as tool selection, bending angle, and radius, is crucial to ensure accurate bending without cracking or fracturing the material.
  2. Tooling Evaluation: MetalPROc meticulously evaluates and selects specialized tooling for CNC Bending Tungsten. Customized tooling with high wear resistance and precise geometries is employed to withstand the high forces and stress involved in bending Tungsten, ensuring optimal results.
  3. Heat Dissipation: Tungsten has excellent thermal conductivity, requiring effective heat dissipation during the bending process. Implementing appropriate cooling techniques and selecting suitable coolants help prevent excessive heat buildup, maintain dimensional accuracy and preserve the material’s properties.
  4. Contamination Prevention: Tungsten is susceptible to contamination, especially from oxides and foreign particles. MetalPROc maintains a clean bending environment and employs proper handling and cleaning techniques to minimize the risk of contamination, ensuring the integrity and quality of bent Tungsten components.
