Tungsten Alloy Military Aircraft Shock Absorber

Tungsten alloy military aircraft shock absorber is also called tungsten alloy military aircraft buffer. It refers to the shock absorber for military aircraft such as fighters, bombers, early warning aircraft, and transport aircraft, which is made of high-density tungsten alloys with high wear resistance, impact resistance, and high-temperature resistance.

The shock absorber is a necessary component of aircraft landing gear, and it is also one of the most important components. Its main function is to absorb the impact energy during landing and taxiing, reduce the load on the airframe to an acceptable level, and at the same time quickly dampen the vibration.

Tungsten alloy has excellent characteristics such as high density (the density of tungsten alloy is 60% higher than that of lead and higher than that of steel as well), high hardness (the hardness of the tungsten alloy rod is between 26HRC and 30HRC, and can even reach higher), high melting point, corrosion resistance, high-temperature resistance, impact resistance, creep resistance, and good thermal stability. Moreover, it is non-toxic and non-polluting to the environment and can also shield against radiation. During World War II, tungsten alloy has been widely used in the military field.

The excellent properties of tungsten alloy enable it to meet the requirements of military aircraft shock absorbers. The tungsten alloy military aircraft shock absorber can be installed to reduce the vibration of the engine to improve the cabin vibration and noise environment. In addition, it can also be used for vibration isolation installation of airborne electronic equipment to improve the environmental conditions of the airborne equipment and improve the reliability, safety, and service life of the equipment.
