Sweden’s Höganäs AB reports that it has added a range of titanium powders for Additive Manufacturing to its product portfolio.
Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals, explains Höganäs, which makes it ideal for a variety of applications, from car components to lightweight aerospace parts. It is also highly resistant to corrosion, and has high biocompatibility properties, making it well suited to customised medical implants.
Höganäs’ forAM® titanium-based alloys for Additive Manufacturing are designed for optimal performance and material efficiency. The grades available include Ti6Al4V (available in grade 5 and grade 23) and CP-Ti (commercially pure titanium), and are suitable for a range of components covering many industries, and offer good material properties.
Further information about the titanium range is available via the company website.
