Aerospace Titanium Technologies

The usage of titanium components alongside composite structures in defense and aerospace demands emerging but proven technologies.

World Leaders in Titanium technologies for the Aerospace industry

Titanium has a unique combination of mechanical properties, outstanding resistance to corrosion and cost effectiveness in a wide range of demanding applications.

Our principals ACB and Cyril Bath are at the forefront in:

  • 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

Super Plastic Forming of Titanium parts:

Super plastic forming for titanium technology for aersopace industry

Our principal MODIG is at the forefront in:

  • Vertical machining centres with up to 55 cubic inches of chip removal per minute

  • Fastest chip removal rate in the world for aluminium and titanium

ertical machining centres with up to 55 cubic inches of chip removal per minute

Our Credentials:

World leaders in their field, our principals are currently involved with almost all the worlds aerospace and defense industry OEM’s and whilst respecting Non Disclosure Agreements, have access to all emerging titanium related R&D and production programs.

Please contact for advice on these technologies if your company is looking to develop your own production methods.

We can propose stand-alone equipment, full turnkey projects (including tool design, factory process and training of your operatives) or intial short-run production of components within ACB’s R&D centre in Nantes for Super Plastic Forming and Linear Friction Welding or at Cyril Bath USA plant for Hot Stretchforming and would be happy to assist in any of these projects.
