Titanium CNC Machining

Titanium CNC Machining

Titanium is a light, durable and strong material that is used in a wide range of applications across industries from automotive, aerospace to marine and defense. The metal possesses unmatched strength and hardness, which makes it one of the most sought-after metals in the world. The metal possesses low coefficient of friction and excellent wear resistance that makes it ideal for high-stress applications. Owing to its unique properties like high hardness and low thermal conductivity, it is challenging to form this metal using traditional machining methods. Here comes the relevance of CNC machining, which is a precision process by which titanium can be cut into intricate shapes and sizes within a given tolerance. It is an extremely precise process that requires great care to ensure optimum accuracy. We at China CNC Machining specialize in titanium CNC machining, and we cater to your specialized requirements, no matter how challenging they are. We regularly produce different types of titanium machined parts quickly and cost-effectively.

Know About Titanium

Titanium metal (Symbol Ti and atomic number 22) is a lustrous transition metal in a silver color, and possess low density, and high strength. It is one of the strongest metals known for its good corrosion resistance, excellent fatigue strength and light weight. It is commonly used in the aerospace, healthcare, military, nuclear and oil industries.

Advantages of Titanium CNC machining

Titanium is one of the most abundant metals on the earth’s crust. The following properties of this metal makes Titanium CNC machining popular among our industry clients.

  • Titanium is a biocompatible and non-toxic metal and is corrosion resistant. Both these properties make it a right choice for medical industry.
  • The titanium parts are non-magnetic and possess high strength-to-weight ratio.
  • This metal is non-magnetic and assures high oxide resistance.
  • Titanium can be easily alloyed with iron, vanadium, aluminum, molybdenum, and nickel to produce strong metal parts.
  • The metal is 100% recyclable, which makes it an environment-friendly material.
  • Owing to its sustainability, titanium CNC machined parts are used in applications where they may be exposed to harsh environments.

The following are a few notable physical, and mechanical properties of Titanium.

  • Density: 4.50 g/cm3
  • Melting point: 1650-1670 °C
  • Boiling point: 3287 °C
  • Tensile strength:220 MPa
  • Modulus of elasticity: 116 GPa
  • Shear modulus: 43.0 GPa
  • Hardness, Brinell : 70

Grades of Mild Steel We Work With

We are committed to deliver high quality titanium machined parts at a low cost in various grades of Titanium. We take special care to ensure that our machining meets your required standards and expectations. The following are a few grades we commonly work with:

  • Titanium Grade 1:

    Titanium grade 1 is a purer form of titanium that has increased corrosion resistance, high tensile strength, and better hardness when compared to other grades of titanium. Titanium grade 1 is a material that ranks 5 on the Mohs hardness scale (1-10). It is a strong, low-weight metal that is used in some of the most important medical and aerospace applications.

  • Titanium Grade 2:

    Titanium grade 2 is the second most common type of titanium and it is referred to as commercially pure grade 2. Titanium Grade 2 is one of the most commonly used type of titanium as it is strong, easy to machine, weld, fabricate and work with. Its major applications are in aerospace, electronics, chemical and petroleum industries.

  • Titanium Grade 5:

    Titanium grade 5 is a superalloy that is used in automotive and aerospace industries. It has excellent high temperature strength, and good resistance to corrosion. This material is usually used for aircraft and spacecraft applications where high temperatures are involved.
