Titanium is a relatively expensive, but very strong and lightweight metal. With a high strength to weight ratio and extraordinary corrosion resistance, Titanium is an ideal choice for aerospace, medical, marine, hand tools, sporting goods, and high-performance automotive applications.
ADVANTAGES OF TITANIUM ALLOYS
Titanium castings are successfully being implemented as cost-effective alternatives to forged and wrought products for high performance and increasingly cost-sensitive applications such as military and commercial aircraft airframe structures. In some instances, these castings have been produced for half the cost of comparable forged and machined parts.
For most of the last two decades, investment casting has been the preferred processing route for sophisticated titanium castings.
