Tungsten Machining Services

Tungsten is one of the toughest elements naturally found on earth. Although it has the highest melting and boiling point of all the known elements, it’s almost exclusively combined with other elements in chemical compounds. While tungsten is a versatile and environmentally friendly metal, tungsten machining can be difficult because of the material’s hardness and brittleness.

Marver Med’s expert machinists have the CNC machining expertise and industry knowledge to successfully machine tungsten components for any industry. We use a process-focused approach to achieve the best results, meet all specifications, and exceed your expectations with our tungsten machining services.

The Benefits of Tungsten Metal for CNC Machined Parts

Tungsten machining produces industrial parts and components that are high-strength, durable, and used throughout most industries. Its resistance to high temperatures makes it an excellent choice when creating alloys or superalloys. As tungsten’s high density allows it to hold much more weight in a smaller size, it is an ideal choice for applications requiring mass in a constrained space. Other benefits include:

  • Low rate of thermal expansion (similar to glass)
  • High corrosion resistance
  • High tensile strength in fabrication
  • And many others!

High-Quality Tungsten Machining Services for Any Industry

Tungsten’s many alloys have uses in various areas. Tungsten has been used to make incandescent light bulb filaments, cutting tools, electrical contacts, x-ray tubes, electrodes in gas tungsten arc welding, superalloys, and radiation shielding. Tungsten machining services are also utilized by industries such as:

Tungsten Machining for Medical Applications

Tungsten machining produces components for a wide range of industries. However, it is instrumental in medical applications due to its high-strength capabilities and resistance to corrosion. Tungsten machining services produce many medical devices, equipment, and systems, including, but not limited to:

  • Diagnostic and therapeutic medical technologies
  • Radiation and lead shielding materials
  • Syringe shields
  • CT scanners
  • Oncology treatment systems
  • And many other medical uses!
