Sintered components in copper tungsten and silver tungsten, distinguished by:
- The high thermal and electrical conductivity of copper, combined with the arc-resistant properties of tungsten, offer greater resistance to temperatures and mechanical stress.
- The pressing, infiltration and sintering processes guarantee a high level of homogeneity and a fine grain microstructur of the final product. This ensure longer product life in comparison, even in the most severe applications.
Our range of sintered components differs in terms of the composition of the infiltrated materials and the relative technical characteristics:
Density: from 14.20 to 15.70 g/cm²
Conductivity: from 43 to 55% IACS
Thermal conductivity: from 185 to 210 w/mk
Brinell hardness (2.5 – 187.5): from 180 to 225 HBW
Rockwell hardness (Diamond – 60 kg): from 55 to 59.9 HRA
Grain size: 4 – 6 µm
Softening temperature: from 920 to 980° C
Thermal expansion coefficient: from 7 to 11 (10-6 °C-1)
We are available to consider the production of sintered components with different technical characteristics and compositions, based on specific customer enquiries.
Thanks to the unique properties of the materials, our sintered components are suitable for use in many fields of application:
- Electrical contacts for medium and high-voltage switches and circuit breakers;
- Production of electrowelded wire mesh;
- Diamond tools sharpening;
- Arc welding;
- Stainless steel welding;
- Die-sink EDM.
