Tungsten Weights


Ashot is a primary source for tungsten-based heavy metal products. The special high specific density characteristics and slight or non-magnetic properties make tungsten ideal for a variety of low volume/high weight applications in the Aerospace industry. Ashot’s tungsten products are installed in a variety of aircrafts and serve as balance weights in the wing fuselage, vertical (rudder) and horizontal (elevator) stabilizers, in helicopter rotors (bifilars), propellers and Aerospace instruments. The majority of balance weights that Ashot supplies are flight safety products. Ashot’s products have been installed in more than a dozen different types of aircrafts.

Ashot’s impressive blending and sintering facilities are backed by metallurgical, chemical and mechanical laboratories equipped with state-of-the art systems. This includes an ICP spectroscope, a scanning electron microscope and other methods of chemical and mechanical analysis.

Ashot has one of the world’s largest sintering facilities, enabling it to manufacture a wide range of tungsten alloys, from standard to tailor-made alloys according to customer requirements.

Ashot’s machining capabilities enable it to manufacture an impressive variety of part shapes, sizes and weights. Ashot is approved by ISO9001:2008, AS9100:D and NADCAP.
