Titanium bar and billets
Forging is very important for titanium bars. Tipro’s forging offers high quality at a competitive price with our forging press. We provide shorter delivery time.
As with other forging alloys, the mechanical properties of titanium alloys are affected by forging and thermal processes as well as alloy content. However, when die filling is optimized, there is only a moderate change in tensile properties with grain direction, and comparable strengths and ductilities are obtainable in both thick and thin sections. The processing of titanium alloys through the forging and subsequent thermal processes is a highly developed technology.
Titanium alloys are more difficult to forge than other metals. The metallurgical behavior of the alloys imposes some limitations and controls on forging operations, and influences all of the steps in the manufacturing operation. Special care is exercised throughout all processing steps to minimize surface contamination by oxygen, carbon or nitrogen. These contaminants can severely impair ductility, impact toughness, and the overall quality of a titanium forging if left on the surfaces.
