Tungsten Applications

  • Furnace Components
  • Semiconductor Base Plates
  • Ion Implantation Cathodes And Anodes
  • Sintering And Annealing Boats And Charge Carriers
  • Radiation Shielding, Sputtering Targets and Electrodes
  • Components for Electron Tubes

Heating elements and shields in furnaces which are machined from tungsten rod, sheet or wire can retain these excellent properties. Additionally, tungsten furnace parts can maintain a high level of chemical stability, corrosion resistance and strength throughout a long service life. Thus, tungsten assemblies and parts are an ideal choice for users of various high temperature furnaces including hot isostatic pressing (HIP) furnace, crystal growth furnace, sintering furnace, vacuum furnace.

Moreover, machining tungsten metal and alloys have been used extensively to produce furnace parts due to its very high melting point and low vapor pressure. On another aspect, the high chemical purity and homogeneity of machining tungsten makes it an ideal material to use as sputtering targets and vapor evaporation. Moreover, the ability of high density to absorb radiation and resist corrosion is invaluable when tungsten product is utilized as a radiation shielding material.

Therefore, tungsten products are irreplaceable in a wide range of industries and applications including quartz glass, health care, coating processes, thermal processes and ion implantation.
