TIMET Powder Metals, LLC
TIMET´s new PREP® powder metals capabilities enable the production of high-density, high-performance structural parts. The use of powder metals consumes less energy, produces less waste, and reduces the number of steps in the fabrication process. In addition, aerospace and medical components with unique characteristics can be more easily fabricated using powder metals than with conventional techniques.
TIMET UK Technical Center
During 2013, TIMET UK will be relocating its laboratories to a new technical center adjacent to the current operations facilities in Birmingham. In addition to the new laboratory facilities, the technical center will include a new operations facility that is focused on implementing the next generation of production technologies. The center will include specialty melting capabilities for emerging classes of titanium alloys such as Gamma Titanium Aluminides.
Gamma Titanium Aluminides
This class of alloys with high-temperature oxidation resistance and improved specific properties at elevated temperatures holds the potential to replace certain nickel-based super-alloy components in aircraft engines. For example, they allow the manufacture of low pressure turbine blades at half the weight of conventional super-alloy components. Lighter, cleaner, and more fuel efficient engines produced with gamma aluminides increase the performance potential of next-generation aircraft.
