In addition to their incorporation as tungsten alloy aerospace counterweights and tungsten alloy aerospace balances, tungsten alloy contribute to aircraft fabrication and repair operations. To deaden the vibration caused by rivet guns, bucking bars ("riveting dollies" or "hand anvils") are used to absorb the force. The vibration can result in damage to nerves, muscles and bones in operators' hands causing Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (Vibration White Finger). Many aerospace companies now reduce the bad effects by using tungsten balloy aerospace counterweight and tungsten alloy aerospace balance.
Ever more rapid long-distance transport of passengers and goods with a concurrent reduction of fuel consumption and emission of pollutants is one of the main demands of today's aerospace industry. Tungsten alloy aerospace counterweight and tungsten alloy aerospace balance made of Tungsten Alloy high performance materials are key elements for future generations of civil supersonic and wide-bodied airplanes, hypersonic aircraft and high performance planes. High-temperature materials facilitate pioneering innovations in the area of propulsion systems, such as aircraft turbines and rocket propulsion, as well as hot outer skin structures of hypersonic aircraft.
Increasing the gas inlet temperature in gas turbines significantly contributes to more energy efficiency in aerospace. Materials have to meet high demands such as hot-gas corrosion resistance, low thermal expansion, high creep resistance and superior fatigue properties.
