Featured Story – Titanium in space: researchers develop manned vessel prototype

An additive manufacturing process pioneered by engineers at Cranfield University in the UK has led to the production of the first full-scale prototype of a titanium pressure vessel for use in manned spaceflight.

Featured Story – Titanium, aerospace and 3D printing: the “ménage à...

If there is one market for CRAs that is bristling with invention and creativity, it is the aerospace industry. Attempts to make air travel more efficient and more comfortable are bearing fruit thanks to notable advances in manufacturing, including robotics and especially 3D printing. Significant developments include the introduction of electric aeroplanes, especially for short journeys; new aircraft designs; the proliferation of drones; and growth of the space sector.

PurgEye Nano for welding titanium and stainless steel

Titanium and stainless steel are both reactive alloys. When they are heated during the welding process, they will react with any air that is present, causing oxidation, which can lead to a loss of corrosion resistance properties.

TKF Certification Standards achieved using Titanium

Australian digital manufacturing solutions company, Titomic (TTT) advised of the outstanding test results which have been achieved from the USD2.6M co-funded IMCRC, CSIRO & RMIT Research Project, designed to develop Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) certification standards announced to the ASX on 26th October 2018.

Fine Tubes & Reading Alloys exhibit at Titanium Europe

Fine Tubes and Reading Alloys – both part of AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP) - will be exhibiting at Titanium Europe 2019 held at the Hotel Savoyen in Vienna from 13 to 15 May.

Zero colour titanium welds with PurgEye Desk

Titanium is a reactive metal, so when heated it will react with surrounding oxygen, discolour and lose its corrosion resistance properties.

Titanium equipment and alloy in petrochemical industry

Titanium and titanium alloys have very good stability in organic compounds except for five organic acids (formic acid, acetic acid, oxalic acid, trichloroacetic acid, and trifluoroacetic acid) at higher temperatures.

Titanium Corporation awarded $50M grant funding

Titanium Corporation Inc. is pleased to announce that the Company has been selected as a successful applicant under the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Fund Challenge (LCEF) and NRCan’s Clean Growth Program (CGP) and Emission Reduction Alberta’s (ERA’s) Partnership Intake Program for a total of USD 50M toward the next phase of the Company’s Creating Value from Waste™ (CVW™) Horizon project.

Titanium pressure vessel using WAAM process

A team comprising of Thales Alenia Space, Cranfield University and Glenalmond Technologies have successfully produced a first full-scale prototype of a titanium pressure vessel to be used in future manned missions for space exploration.

Fatal Flaw in 3D printed titanium parts

Since titanium has long been considered one of the most suitable materials for metal 3D printing, its scope of application is now quite large, such as implants used in the medical industry and various aerospace parts.
