Tungsten Copper Heat Sinks
Our tungsten copper composites to be used extensively in thermal mounting plates, chip carriers, flanges, and frames for high-powered electronic devices. With the thermal advantages of copper with the very low expansion characteristics of tungsten, tungsten copper has properties similar to those of silicone carbide, aluminum oxide, and beryllium oxide. The thermal conductivity and low expansion also make tungsten copper alloy an excellent choice even for extremely dense circuits.
The CuW75 tungsten copper alloy is used extensively in thermal mounting plates, chip carriers, flanges, and frames for high-power electronic devices. As a tungsten copper material, it's a composite, so both the thermal advantages of copper and the very low expansion characteristics of tungsten can be utilized.
The combination of tungsten & copper materials results in thermal expansion characteristics similar to those of silicone carbide, aluminum oxide, and beryllium oxide, used as chips and substrates. Because of tungsten copper's thermal conductivity and expansion characteristics, Tungsten copper alloy works well in densely packed circuits.
Tungsten Copper Resistance Welding
If you can't stand the heat ^ resistance welding isn't for you. Luckily, electrodes made from our tungsten copper composites perform even under the most extreme conditions. High-thermal and electrical conductivity along with the ability to reduce heat-balance problems make our tungsten copper composites excellent choices for die inserts and electrode facings, flash and butt welding dies, and hot upsetting.
The high physical and mechanical properties, as well as the thermal and electrical conductivity, of refractory metal composites make tungsten copper alloy very suitable for die inserts and electrode facings, flash and butt welding dies, and hot upsetting. They can also solve heat balance problems.
Tungsten Copper Electrical Contacts
The CuW75 tungsten copper materials can be also used in oil-filled devices, air and gas circuit breakers, contactors, and high voltage switch gear. Some common applications are:
arcing contacts and plates
current carrying members
The high electrical and thermal conductivity of tungsten copper alloy allows a cool, effective transfer of power, while the excellent arc-resistance properties of tungsten copper minimize arc erosion and transfer problems. These characteristics can be varied by composition_more silver or copper yields higher electrical and thermal conductivity, while a higher refractory metal content results in superior arc erosion properties. We offer a variety of composites to meet your demands. Regardless of the environment (oil-filled devices, air and gas circuit breakers, contactors, high voltage switch gear) or the application (arcing contacts and plates, arc runners, current carrying members and blade facings), you won't be disappointed in electrical contacts made from our copper tungsten composites.
Tungsten Copper EDM and ECM
Our tungsten copper composites are used worldwide for electrical discharge machining (EDM) and electrochemical machining (ECM) electrodes. All composite material is manufactured by the press, sinter, and infiltrate process; adhering to strict quality checks every step of the way. You can rely on the quality of our tungsten composites to provide consistent, homogeneous materials that yield high and even burning rates
Tungsten copper alloys are used worldwide for EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) and ECM (Electrochemical Machining) electrodes. All material is manufactured by the press, sinter, and infiltrate process. Virgin tungsten powders are used, resulting in a consistent homogeneous material giving high and even burning rates. Tungsten copper is used in plunger/sinker applications where intricate definition is required, especially in tungsten carbide.
Specifications of Copper Tungsten Alloy:
All of our copper tungsten alloys are produced by the press, sinter, and infiltrate process. Each manufacturing step, including the basic powder, is closely controlled, monitored, and signed off on by Quality Assurance. After completion, all manufactured lots are checked for conductivity, density, and hardness prior to shipping. This information is recorded and kept on file, and also accompanies the parts or materials when requested.
The Machining/Grinding Characteristics of Tungsten Copper Alloy
The machining and grinding characteristics of tungsten alloy are similar to those of hard grey cast iron. Being nonporous, standard water soluble coolants may be used if desired, but are not required. Each machine shop usually has its individual machining or grinding practice and, therefore, the information presented should be considered as a guide only.
Tool: Carballoy, grade 883 or equivalent. Grind tools with 0 deg. rake, 8-12 deg. clearance, and .010" to .025" nose radius. The nose radius can increase with the size of the work. For fine finish, stone small flat on tool parallel to work. Suggest resting stone on work when honing tool.
Turning & Boring: Roughing, approximately .030" deep and .020" per revolution feed. Finishing, .002" to.005" depth of cut and .001" to .002" per revolution feed. Turning speed, 300-500 surface feet per minute. Do not use lubricant or coolant.
Shaping: Tool Speed: 43" per minute for Tungsten Copper 25% alloy.
Depth of Cut: .030"
Feed: .020" per stroke
Milling: Drilling High Speed steel drills and taps may be used.
Through Tapping: Holes are recommended. Material must be firmly held. Hand feed-lubricant and cutting oil acceptable.
Rough Grinding: is best done with 80 grit resin bonded wheels of medium hardness; .015" per pass on Tungsten Copper 25% alloy.
Use water or water soluble oil coolant.
Joining: Material may be silver brazed, or copper brazed in a hydrogen atmosphere.
Copper Tungsten alloy is the composite of Tungsten and Copper, which own the excellent performances of Tungsten and Copper, such as heat-resistant, ablate-resistant, high-intensity, excellent thermal and electrical conductivity. It is easy to be machined. It is used widely in such industries as engine, electrical power, electron, metallurgy, spaceflight and aviation. Using CIP formation, sintered tungsten skeleton and infiltrating copper (silver) technology, large size and special shape products of tungsten-copper (silver) composites with 6-90 percent of copper are produced, such as electric contacts, electrode, refractory parts, heat sinks and parts of rocket, We can also produce sheet material, tubing, plate and other small products by mould pressing, extrusion pressing and MIM.
Tungsten copper alloys are used where the combination of high heat resistance, high electrical and/or thermal conductivity, and low thermal expansion are needed. Some of the applications are in electric resistance welding, as electrical contacts, and as heat sinks. As contact material the alloy is resistant to erosion by electric arc. WCu alloys are also used in electrodes for electrical discharge machining and electrochemical machining.
The CuW75 alloy, with 75% of tungsten, is widely used in chip carriers, substrates, flanges and frames for power semiconductor devices. The high thermal conductivity of copper together with the low thermal expansion of tungsten allows thermal expansion matching to silicon, gallium arsenide, and some ceramics. Other materials for this applications are CuMo alloy, AlSiC, and Dymalloy.
