Why Do Molybdenum Wires Break in the Wire Cutting?

0 Comment

People in wire cutting industry know that molybdenum wire breakage is often occurring in the wire cutting process. So why do molybdenum wires always break in the wire cutting? Molybdenum wire of wire cutting In normal conditions, the diameter loss of molybdenum wire per cutting l0000mm2 is approximately 0.001~0.02mm. Therefore, molybdenum wire should be replaced in time […]

Refractory Metal Powders Are Expected to Become Raw Materials for 3D Printing

0 Comment

3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing. Similar to the powder metallurgy processes we use today, metal devices manufactured with this technology are based on metal powders, such as ceramic powders and metal powders. The difference is that the powder is not sintered together, but formed by “printing” sections of the parts onto the […]
