Titanium Alloys – powder for additive manufacturing

In 3D printing, titanium alloys are used to produce lightweight components for the aerospace and automotive industries, and hip implants in medical technology.

Titanium and titanium aluminide in additive manufacturing - the first choice for lightweight components

Titanium Alloys

Titanium aluminide (TiAl) and titanium are characterized by low weight in combination with high mechanical strength. At the same time, the material is brittle and difficult to process in traditional processes. Use of the EBM (electron beam melting) in additive manufacturing makes processing possible.

High strength properties combined with high temperature mechanical properties make titanium aluminides particularly interesting for applications in aerospace engine and turbine components. Up to 60% weight savings and very high mechanical strength ensure reduced CO2 emissions, among other things, making titanium aluminide the material of the future for lightweight construction in the automotive industry. Specific alloys such as Ti64 grade 23 (Ti6Al4V) is a titanium alloy especially in demand in medical technology for hip implants.
