We 3D Print Tungsten Components For Nuclear Medicine

Would you like to see first-hand what can be produced using our revolutionary additive manufacturing process? Wolfmet 3D samples will be on display at this year’s EANM 2018, 13th-17th October, Düsseldorf, Germany – The Pavilion Booth 52 Hall 4

Wolfmet 3D utilises a high powered laser to fuse successive layers of tungsten powder until a complex component is built. It is perfect for the manufacture of high-precision components including collimators and radiation shields in imaging systems such as CT, SPECT, MR and X-ray. Using Wolfmet 3D allows components to be produced quickly and cost effectively.

Wolfmet 3D Typical Components

Wolfmet 3D Typical Components

We believe Wolfmet 3D is transforming what is possible in collimator and shielding design and our customers have been keen to test this proposition. In addition to standard grid collimators, we have been making complex bespoke designs that deliver better results for our customers.

We also manufacture traditional tungsten alloy radiation shields and collimators using the conventional method of milling and turning. These components are popular because of Wolfmet tungsten’s remarkably high density. It is 60% denser than lead and therefore provides superior attenuation characteristics for X-ray and gamma radiation.
