In response to concerns about the human and environmental health effects of materials used to produce munitions, countries including the United States have begun replacing some lead- and depleted uranium-based munitions with alternatives made of a tungsten alloy.
The term “tungsten carbide” describes a comprehensive family of hard carbide compositions used for metal cutting tools, dies of various types, and wear parts. In general, these materials are composed of the carbides of tungsten, titanium, tantalum, or some combination of these, sintered or cemented in a matrix binder, usually cobalt.
Because of the low end demands, the whole tungsten market keeps slump. Tungsten ore price keeps droping without any support. Tunsten product price has been fully close to the costs and it makes the suppliers frustrated.
Metal injection molding technology has unique advantages in the manufacture of complex shapes, uniform organizational structure and high precision net shape products. Any metal or alloy in powder can
