Tungsten Machining Manufacturer


Part made with 5 Axis milling out of tungsten for the Laser Industry

Due to the metal’s hardness and how difficult it is to machine, most machine shops shy away from working with tungsten—but we don’t. Portland Precision Machining Company has many years of experience in machining tungsten, and can deliver tungsten parts that match your designs exactly and meet your tolerances within ±0.0005” or better.

Advanced CNC machining systems enable us to produce even the most intricate tungsten parts with unparalleled precision and repeatability, and in any quantity your project requires.

Working with Tungsten

Originally known as “wolfram,” tungsten is a rare earth metal known for its high hardness, high density, and high tensile strength. It is naturally corrosion resistant, and has the highest melting point of all metals, over 3,000°F. In its pure form, tungsten is also quite ductile.

Tungsten is used in numerous, wide-ranging applications, from high-end optics to jewelry to high-powered lightbulb filaments. Its density makes it useful as counterweight or ballast for boats and race cars. Its high melting point makes it popular for countless high-temperature applications, such as rocket engine nozzles.

Portland Precision is one of few in our industry who can accurately and effectively machine tungsten. Using state-of-the-art equipment and special processes we developed ourselves, we provide full-service precision machining for tungsten parts. We can even machine in tapped holes and other special features, as your designs may require.

We also offer an array of secondary operations—surface finishing, etc.—to add further value to our machined tungsten parts. Our secondary services will save you valuable time and money in the production process.
