Titanium Machined Parts
Titanium is a low-density, high strength chemical element. It is found naturally in the Earth as well as the human body. Titanium can be alloyed with other elements and is often used in steel. Though it is a hard material, it is not as hard as steel. When exposed to air and water it will form a passive coating to protect from oxidation. This makes the material highly resistant to corrosion when in contact with chlorine and sea water. Therefore, Titanium makes useful subsea parts.
There are around 50 types of Titanium, with 4 of them having the distinction of being ‘commercially pure’. These are graded from 1 to 4 with 1 being the most ductile and 4 being the least. When machining Titanium the process must include the use of sharp tools and proper cooling methods to maintain strength. Titanium can be expensive, which puts buyers at risk of losing money if their material is machined by inexperienced personnel. Our experience and quality standards ensure the least material waste as well as the most precise machining.
