- Luxury: jewelry, watches
- Spectacle trade
- Sports Equipment: cycle, mountaineering, free flight
- Boating: deck hardware
- Automotive: valves, connecting rods
- Chemical / Energy Industry: Condensers, Tubing, Fittings
- Biocompatibility (TA6V ELI)
- Mechanical resistance
- Corrosion resistance
Titanium machining for medical: biocompatibility!
Indeed, bone spontaneously adheres to titanium, making it a preferred material for prostheses.
Titanium is one of the most biocompatible metals, with gold and platinum.
Moreover, titanium has a high mechanical resistance and a modulus of elasticity very low, close to that of the bone structures.
This elasticity, which promotes bone remodeling by forcing the bone to work, makes titanium a particularly interesting biomaterial.
Titanium for aeronautics and space: Resistance and lightness
The main applications using titanium concern civil aviation: engine parts, cell structures and some components. However, the new military aeronautical programs will have a non-negligible impact.
Driven by new generations of airliners, aerospace applications will soon account for half of the annual consumption of titanium.
Titanium for the military industry
It is used as shielding where its mechanical properties and resistance to corrosion and fire are put forward.
Titanium for the chemical industry
Thus, titanium tubes are found in many condensers, where its resistance to corrosion and abrasion allows long service lives.
Titanium for the energy industry
Due to its high specific strength, it is also used in turbine-shaped turbine generators.
Titanium for the automotive industry
There are valves, springs and connecting rods made of titanium.
