Titanium Alloys

Titanium Grades 1-4


These grades 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


Grade 5 is the most commonly titanium 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.

Machining Options

CNC Milling

Mills use rotating tools to cut material into almost any 3D shape. CNC Mills can work with tight tolerances.

Waterjet Cutting

Waterjets mainly cut sheet material into 2D parts using a high-pressure stream of water and abrasive. Waterjet cutting is suitable for most materials and yields clean edges.

CNC Turning

CNC Lathes feed cutting tools into rotating material. Turning is mainly used to produce precise, cylindrical parts.

Wire EDM

Die-Sink and Wire EDM machines create parts by using recurring sparks to remove material. Recommended for intricate designs requiring sharp inside corners and high dimensional accuracy.

Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is often used to produce 2D parts from sheet metal. A laser beam vaporizes a cut path to achieve the desired shape. Great for prototypes and short runs.

Turret Punching

CNC Turret Presses create 2D parts by rapidly punching predetermined shapes into sheet material. Cost-effective for production runs of simple metal parts.

Plasma Cutting

CNC Plasma Cutters use a high-velocity stream of ionized gas to cut parts out of sheet metal. Excellent for producing 2D parts when working with thick metal sheets.

Secondary Manufacturing

After manufacturing, parts may require additional processing. Secondary services include CNC bending, grinding, tapping, knurling and more.

Surface Finishing

Finishing processes are used to enhance appearance, surface durability, and corrosion resistance. Options include powder coating, anodizing, plating, polishing and more.

Advantages

In many applications, titanium has numerous advantages over other metals.

The most noteworthy advantage is its high strength-to-weight ratio. For example, titanium is as strong as steel, but is nearly 40% lighter. When compared to aluminum 6061-T6, titanium is 60% heavier, but more than twice as strong.

This metal has excellent corrosion resistance (including to salt water) and resists tarnishing at room temperature. Titanium is also ductile and has a high melting point, making it perfect for extreme heat applications.
