Manufacturing products from titanium and its alloys using traditional methods remains a complex technological task that requires a lot of time and money. Scientists at South Ural State University have developed a new universal technology for manufacturing titanium alloy parts using additive technologies. The new technology will allow significant savings in further machining. An article about the study was published in Materials.

Titanium is widely used in mechanical engineering and aviation due to its strength. However, to a greater extent, traditional foundry production is used for the manufacture of these parts. The use of additive technologies seems to represent a very promising direction since it can produce products of complex geometric shapes from titanium and its alloys with relatively little subsequent machining.

Production - Parts - Process - Atmosphere - Vacuum

"The production of parts by casting is a very complex technological process. It must be produced in a controlled atmosphere (under vacuum or in a protective gas environment) to avoid the interaction of the titanium melt with oxygen and nitrogen in the air. And further machining of such parts requires certain conditions and equipment; therefore, it is notable for its high cost. The use of additive technologies seems to be a very promising direction, since it can allow creating products of complex geometric shapes from titanium and its alloys with little machining. This will significantly reduce the price of the finished product," explains SUSU Professor Marina Samodurova, doctor of technical sciences.

The aim of the work of scientists of South Ural State University together with specialists of Composite JSC...
