Custom Titanium Parts Machining
If you need titanium parts machined we are one of the most capable and affordable sources, and we can get the job done right.
Titanium has many significant advantages over other metals. It is a metal known for it’s high strength to weight ratio. It is corrosion-resistant (including to salt water) and resists tarnishing at room temperature. Titanium is ductile and has a high melting point. Though it is more than 60% heavier than aluminum it is more than twice as strong as 6061-T6.
VOHN machine shop manufactures titanium parts using: Bending, Counter boring, Counter sinking, Drilling, Surface Grinding, Milling, Photochemical Milling, Reaming, Shearing, Threading & Tapping, Turning (lathe), Waterjet Cutting and Wire EDM.
Titanium comes in many alloys. Following are a few of those more commonly used.
Titanium Grades 1-4 are unalloyed and considered commercially pure. The tensile and yield strength goes up with grade number for these “pure” grades. These grades are used for corrosion resistance and where cost and ease of fabrication and welding are important. These grades are approximately 40% lighter than steel with a high strength-to-weight ratio.
Titanium Grade 5 is the most commonly used alloy. It is also designated as Ti6Al4V, Ti-6AL-4V or simply Ti 6-4. Grade 5 is often used in aerospace, medical, marine, and chemical processing applications. This grade is relatively strong and has better resistance to high temperatures compared to Grade 2.
Titanium Grade 9 – Also known as Ti-3AL-2.5V, this alloy has higher tensile strength than commercially pure Grade 2 titanium at both room and elevated temperatures. It is also more weldable than Grade 5 titanium.
Titanium is often used in: jet engines, missiles, spacecraft, medical prostheses, orthopedic implants, medical instruments, sporting goods, jewelry, landing gear, hydraulic systems, aircraft engines, aircraft frames, rotors, compressor blades, hydraulic system components, propeller shafts, ocean-deployed surveillance and monitoring devices, submarines, heat exchangers, tanks, chemical process vessels, valves, auto and motorcycle racing, hammer heads, tennis rackets, golf clubs, football helmet grills, bicycle frames and components, spectacle frames, hiking equipment (cookware, utensils, lanterns, etc.), engagement rings, wedding bands, watch cases, body piercing, sculptures and furniture.
