Showcasing Wolfmet innovations at San Diego nuclear medicine show

Showcasing Wolfmet innovations at San Diego nuclear medicine show


Wolfmet continues to lead the way in tungsten innovations for nuclear medicine. Wolfmet capabilities are now enhanced by Selective Laser Melting (SLM) – producing precision tungsten components through an additive manufacturing process - and recent examples will be on display at SNMMI 2016 in San Diego.

Using data from a 3D file, SLM comprises a high powered laser that fuses successive layers of tungsten powder until a complex component is produced. Wolfmet SLM delivers clear advantages in the design and manufacture of parts such as collimators.

SNMMI 2016 Wolfmet

Customers report real benefits using Wolfmet SLM:

  • The ability to design highly complex components
  • Making shapes not possible via traditional milling and turning
  • Improved resolution via thinner septa and smaller apertures
  • No tooling costs for new designs and prototypes
  • No cost penalty for short production runs
  • Non-magnetic – MRI compatible
  • Reduced delivery times
  • Working with Wolfmet tungsten experts on design and production matters
