ATI achieves PQ titanium product and process qualification

June 17, 2015

Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (ATI) has announced that it has achieved qualification for its premium titanium products used in jet engine rotating parts made using premium quality (PQ) titanium sponge from ATI’s Rowley, Utah, USA, facility. Premium-quality titanium sponge is the critical raw material required to manufacture the most demanding jet engine rotating parts.

“We are pleased to achieve PQ product qualification for the premium-quality titanium sponge produced at our Rowley facility. Our operating team did an excellent job and exceeded the qualification schedule,” stated Rich Harshman, ATI’s Chairman, President and CEO. “This concludes a multi-year strategic process. The timing of the qualification is well aligned with forecasted growth in demand from the aerospace market.

“This approval pertains to ATI’s premium-grade titanium products produced using ATI PQ titanium sponge and melted at our Plasma Arc Melt (PAM) facility in Bakers, North Carolina, and our Vacuum Arc Remelt (VAR) operations in Albany, Oregon.

“With this approval, ATI is now integrated for titanium alloys from PQ sponge through melting processes, to mill products, and to parts and components, such as our fully machined forgings and investment castings, used in next-generation and legacy jet engines and airframes.”
