Tungsten

At Elcon Precision we produce top-of-the-line Tungsten products.  With over fifty years of experience, expert technicians and our capacity to form Tungsten in house, we are uniquely suited to provide solutions to a wide range of customers and industries.  We specialize in working with this particularly brittle and difficult to machine material.

Tungsten is a rare, remarkably robust metal with the highest melting point (3422 °C) of any element known to mankind.  This combined with its extremely high tensile strength makes it an ideal material for a variety of sensitive applications.  At Elcon we can produce Tungsten components in sheet form between 0.004 to 0.040 inches in thickness and up to 12x12 inch panels.  We also have the capacity to manufacture Tungsten parts using high purity, thoriated, and AKS grades.
