Tungsten Copper Rods, Tungsten Copper Bars:
Tungsten copper rods description:
Tungsten copper rod is always used as electrodes to machine hard materials like hardened steel, titanium, and hard metals for spark erosion technology.
In this technique, electrical discharges occur between an electrode (WCu electrode) and the conductive workpiece that is to be machined. The sparks produced remove particles from the workpiece and are accurately controlled to give it the required specifications and surfaces.
During years of research and development, we have promoted special WCu rods for EDM and EGM processes. It can achieve better efficiency by showing low wear, appropriate contour sharpness, and is easy to grind.
Tungsten copper rod advantages:
Compared to copper or graphite electrodes, WCu electrodes have a longer service life. Especially in complex electrodes, service life is a key point to saving machining costs.
Compared to copper or graphite electrodes, WCu electrodes are easier to reach a high level of precision and achieve low machining tolerances.
Compared to copper or graphite electrodes, WCu electrodes have better machinability. This material has no problems of deformation, burr formation, or material chipping.
Compared to graphite electrodes, WCu electrodes have no special requirements about the environment, which can also help save costs.
Tungsten copper rods application:
Tungsten copper rods can be used for EDM, resistance welding, electricity switch contact, and heat spreader.
In our factory, we produce tungsten copper rods, tungsten copper bars, tungsten copper sheets, tungsten copper plates, tungsten copper disks, tungsten copper wheels, and fabricated parts in different dimensions and different contents. Normally the grade will be W80Cu20, W75Cu25, or W70Cu30. But if you need other grades, we can also offer them based on your requirements.
