Abstract:

The development of a technique and determination of feasibility of producing the M735 Tungsten Alloy Core to a ballistically and mechanically acceptable standard by taper swaging a near-net shape sintered blank. Description of manufacturing techniques of pressing, sintering and swaging employed. Special emphasis on techniques for taper swaging using progressive opening of the die segments, a special die configuration and a control system used as selected method of reaching desired results. Process offers a possible cost reduction by reducing the starting weight of alloy powder by some 40. Author
