What is Titanium Fabrication?
Titanium offers excellent malleability and flexibility suitable for various manufacturing operations. It can be formed through different techniques and processes such as high-speed cutting, milling, drilling, cold and hot forming, direct metal laser sintering, and more. We recommend titanium alloys if you’re looking for a metal that can handle the heat. They offer good creep resistance across a wide temperature range.
Titanium fabrication is popular in industries including marine, industrial, medical, aerospace, industrial, and more. Several companies rely on Titanium due to its long-term corrosion resistance, weight savings, reliability, and durability. It also exhibits nonmagnetic qualities, strength despite high temperature, and high melting points. Titanium is available in numerous grades from .160 lb/in3 to .175 lb/in3.

Titanium Fabrication Techniques and Processes
Due to its high thermal strength, titanium and its alloys can be easily hot worked. This process improves the engineering properties of titanium. It can be used extrusion, forging, and drawing, etc.
A metalworking process that uses temperature below the re-crystallization temperature. This process is used for bending, spinning process, rolling, and more. It maintains metal dimensional accuracy.
Titanium is shaped and formed through the process of forging, which involves pressing, rolling, and hammering. A well-suited process when it comes to various titanium parts quality, price, and durability.
The easiest machining process for titanium is turning. For continuous turning operations, carbide tools offer the best production rates. Titanium can be turning process due to its excellent hardness and low thermal conductivity.
Titanium-formed parts offer strong, lightweight, bio-compatible features and more. The forming process includes hot forming, cold forming, and superplastic forming. These processes provide quality titanium parts.
Titanium can be precisely machined into complex forms and sizes within a specified tolerance using the process known as machining. It requires great care to ensure optimum accuracy.
Straight-line cuts are made by shearing without the creation of burning, chipping, or melting the titanium material. Can be used with virtually any diameter part. Economical for high-volume operations that produce thousands of parts each hour.
Titanium is popular due to its weldability. It can be welded using TIG, MIG, resistance spot and seam, and electron beam welding techniques. KDM is an expert in this field and provides flawless results operations.
A thermal cutting technique that produces a flame with sufficient energy to melt and sever material using oxygen and a fuel source. KDM is an expert in this technique to produce the right parts for your projects.
Titanium may also be friction cut easily through mechanical hacksawing. Sawing titanium is a lower cutting resistance using the pulse cutting technique. It increased tooth contact and decreased heat loads as a result of shorter chipping.
KDM has the right plasma cutting tools, speeds, and feeds to manufacture precision clean parts. It includes using a plasma torch or plasma CNC machine. Plasma cutting is an extremely versatile process.
KDM used an advanced laser cutter to process titanium. It can safely and efficiently cut titanium sheets, plates, and bar stock Machined parts can be used in various industries such as aerospace, computing, electronics, architecture, etc.
Polishing titanium provides shining, mirror-like appearance parts. It reduces the roughness, provides metallic purity and chemical passivity. This process can be run with low power consumption.

Different Titanium Fabrication Surface Treatment
Titanium anodizing is commonly used to increase the thickness of the oxide layer on the metal’s surface. The thin but compact oxide film improves strength of the product. This process is used on medical implants products and aerospace industry. It provides enhanced friction performance, increased wear resistance, anti-galling, etc.
Plasma nitriding improves the wear, friction, fatigue, and corrosion resistance properties of various titanium parts. It’s a hardening-heat process that delivers nitrogen to the outer surface thermochemically and produces a casing. Many automotive components, including gears, crankshafts, and other engine parts, have been subjected to PN procedures.
Anti-Galling surface treatment can lessen the potential for titanium to gall when it is in sliding contact with itself or other materials. This is especially beneficial for bearing surfaces and bolt threads. Bolt thread seizure can be prevented by anti-galling coatings.
Plasma electrolyte oxidation coatings address the issue of cracking. This surface treatment is commonly used for titanium products found in automotive, medical, aerospace, defense applications, etc. The products can be custom to applications suitable for engineers’ design.
