Tungsten, prized for its density and durability, is of increasing interest to manufacturers in a variety of markets, particularly because additive manufacturing is expanding its potential applications. As owner of the world’s largest printer park dedicated to tungsten, Dunlee is at the forefront of developing products and components with this useful material.
