Tungsten Alloy Counterweight for Vehicle Details
Drivers consistently report they can sense differences in how a car handles on the track if the weight on a given wheel varies only by a couple of pounds. Fine tuning a car to a given track is a very cumbersome and time consuming ordeal with conventional lead plate weights. WHA weight blocks offer up to 50% more weight in a given volume, with the added advantages of direct attachment via threaded holes or thru-bolting and the freedom from deformation. The high density of WHAs permit weights to be placed in the lower half of NASCAR weight adjustment tubes, effectively lowering the overall center of gravity for improved handling. Tungsten alloy counterweight has a specialized line of racing weights for these applications.
Reasons for Choosing Tungsten Alloy Counterweight
Tungsten alloy counterweight of racing car is now becoming the most popular material for ballast, due to its main advantages as follows:
Adding tungsten alloy counterweight into the whole framework of a racing car is helpful to optimize the performance of the racing car during the racing progress, which contributes to the better control of the car’s movement.
High Tensile Strength and Good Creep Resistance
Tungsten has high tensile strength and good creep resistance with a high mass/size ratio, so tungsten alloy counterweight will be the ideal to work in a restricted space. Its high density also gives enhanced sensitivity by increasing the control of load distribution.
Tungsten alloy is also easily machineable which gives designers greater flexibility in deciding on the final shape of components and offer designers several advantages over conventional balance materials e.g. lead or steel.
Therefore, tungsten heavy alloy is the best choice for counterweight, balance weights for flywheels, ballast for F1 formula car, racing weights, dynamic balancing, etc. It is the best material of tungsten alloy for the balancing weight, and has been widely known and applied.
