Tungsten for Gyroscope Rotors

What Is Tungsten Alloy Gyroscope Rotors?

Tungsten Alloy Gyroscope Rotor
A tungsten alloy gyroscope rotor is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of angular momentum. A mechanical they are essentially a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation. This orientation changes much less in response to a given external torque than it would without the large angular momentum associated with the gyroscope's high rate of spin. Since external torque is minimized by mounting the device in gimbals, its orientation remains nearly fixed, regardless of any motion of the platform on which it is mounted. Solid state gyroscopes also exist.

Applications of Tungsten Alloy Gyroscopes Rotors

Applications of tungsten alloy gyroscopes rotors include navigation (INS) when magnetic compasses do not work (as in the Hubble telescope) or are not precise enough (as in ICBMs) or for the stabilization of flying vehicles like Radio-controlled helicopters or UAVs. Due to higher precision, tungsten alloy gyroscope rotors are also used to maintain direction in tunnel mining.

Gyroscope rotors exhibit a number of behaviors including precession and notations. Tungsten heavy alloy gyroscope rotors can be used to construct gyrocompasses which complement or replace magnetic compasses (in ships, aircraft and spacecraft, vehicles in general), to assist in stability (bicycle, Hubble Space Telescope, ships, vehicles in general) or be used as part of an inertial guidance system. It effects are used in toys like tops, boomerangs, yo-yos, and Powerball's. Many other rotating devices, such as flywheels, behave gyroscopically although the gyroscopic effect is not used.

Tungsten alloy gyroscope rotors in operation has freedom of movement in all three axes. The tungsten alloy gyroscope rotors will maintain its spin axis direction regardless of the orientation of the outer frame. With its perfect properties, tungsten alloy is the perfect material for gyroscope rotors.
