Aerospace Titanium Technologies
The usage of titanium components alongside composite structures in defense and aerospace demands emerging but proven technologies.
Titanium has a unique combination of properties including outstanding resistance to corrosion and cost effectiveness which makes it an attractive aerospace technology.
Aerospace Titanium technologies include:
- Super Plastic Forming and Diffusion Bonding
- Linear Friction Welding e.g. Hollow fan blades to blisk
- Linear Friction Welding of webs and strengtheners for aerostructure parts
- Forming of leading & trailing edge titanium components for composite blades
ACB are world leaders in these aerospace titanium technologies
