TUNGSTEN COUNTER WEIGHTS
Tungsten heavy alloy counterweights are widely used in aerospace, automotive, medical, military and other fields as counterweight parts, shielding material and kinetic energy components. Tungsten is completely non-toxic and an environmentally friendly alternative to lead. It is about 1.7 times heavier than lead and twice as dense as steel. It is gaining increased use in weighting applications where lead is not appropriate or banned in many streams. It is used to compensate for oscillations, weight transfers, imbalances, and vibrations, create or shift centers of gravity and more generally to ensure optimum balance.
