Titaniumis a transition metal that 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 and resists tarnishing at room temperature. Titanium is also ductile and has a high melting point, making it perfect for extreme heat applications.

Mills use rotating tools to cut material into almost any 3D shape. CNC Mills can work with tight tolerances.
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 Lathes feed cutting tools into rotating material. Turning is mainly used to produce precise, cylindrical parts.
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 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.
CNC Turret Presses create 2D parts by rapidly punching predetermined shapes into sheet material. Cost-effective for production runs of simple metal parts.
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.
After manufacturing, parts may require additional processing. Secondary services include CNC bending, grinding, tapping, knurling and more.
Finishing processes are used to enhance appearance, surface durability, and corrosion resistance. Options include powder coating, anodizing, plating, polishing and more.
Titanium Grades and Alloys
Titanium Grade 1
Commercially Pure Titanium Excellent corrosion resistance, formability, and high impact toughness. Widely used in chemical processing, automotive parts, and marine applications.
Titanium Grade 2
Commercially Pure Titanium Widely available. Shares qualities with Grade 1, but is slightly stronger. Its weldability and strength make it great for medical and architectural applications.
Titanium Grade 3
Commercially Pure Titanium Stronger than Grades 1 and 2 with similar ductility and slightly less formability. Common applications include aerospace structures, chemical processing and medical equipment.
Titanium Grade 4
Commercially Pure Titanium Strongest of the four commercially pure titanium grades. Has excellent corrosion resistance, and good formability and weldability. Applications include airframe components and surgical hardware.
Titanium Grade 5
Alloy Ti6Al4V / Ti-6AL-4V / Ti 6-4 The most commonly used titanium alloy. Strong with better high temperature resistance than Grade 2. Often used in aerospace, medical, marine, and chemical processing applications.
Titanium Grade 9
Alloy Ti-3AL-2.5V Higher tensile strength than Grade 2, and more weldable and corrosion resistant than Grade 5. Predominantly used in industrial and aerospace applications.
