Strategies and initiatives for cost-affordable PM Ti alloys: Compositions and manufacturing
In this article, Dr Leandro Bolzoni of the University of Waikato, New Zealand, presents an overview of the progress made towards more affordable processing of Ti-based materials via thermomechanical powder consolidation based on the cost-effective hydride-dehydride powder.
In particular, he presents examples of initiatives taken with respect to the investigation of the design of cost-effective (wrought-equivalent and non-standard) chemical compositions, such as low-cost Fe-bearing Ti alloys, and on the development and optimisation of Powder Metallurgy manufacturing processes, both individually and in combination.
