Review on Processing of Molybdenum metal-1

As you can see, the processes are similar with tungsten machining, but requires different tools, feed speed, and annealing process. The accuracy of the work-pieces presented is also different.
Pure molybdenum has better ductility than tungsten, while tungsten alloys (WNiFe, WNiCu) have better machining performance than molybdenum alloys (Mo-La alloy, TZM Alloy, especially TZM alloy). We will introduce this in future articles.
