Dynamet Technology, Inc., Burlington, USA, has received qualification approval from Boeing for the supply of Ti-6Al-4V alloy products for structural components on commercial aircraft.

The Dynamet advanced powder metallurgy (PM) manufacturing technology involves the cold consolidation of blended elemental titanium and alloy powders and vacuum sintering, with or without subsequent hot isostatic pressing, to produce powder metal products in basic shapes and near-net shape product forms.

After years of development and qualification effort including establishing designs allowable from Dynamet supplied material, a Boeing Material Specification has been released with Dynamet Technology as the only qualified manufacturer for PM Ti-6Al-4V product for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. This major milestone now permits Boeing Commercial Airplanes and their component supply chain to begin the process of substituting the PM Ti-6Al-4V alloy product as an alternative to machining from standard grades of Ti-6Al-4V, for example bar, plate, castings, forgings or extruded products.

Stanley Abkowitz, CEO of Dynamet Technology, Inc. indicated that this near-net shape PM manufacturing technology will result in lower cost titanium products and in reduced product lead-times for titanium aircraft components. Dynamet is exploring opportunities to facilitate and accelerate its growth to meet future demands.

Dynamet Technology is a supplier of near-net shape components produced by its advanced powder metallurgical process. These components are produced from standard titanium alloys as well as Dynamet’s proprietary titanium alloys and metal matrix composites in prototype and production quantities for military, industrial, aerospace and biomedical applications.
