CONVENTIONAL TITANIUM FORGINGS
Conventional titanium forgings are usually produced at lower die temperatures with less costly and less complex conventional tooling. The production rates of conventional titanium forgings are typically much higher than for iso-thermal titanium forgings, resulting in a less costly part with shorter lead times.
ISO-THERMAL TITANIUM FORGINGS
When the temperatures of both the forging dies and the titanium raw material are elevated to the same very high level, we call this condition “Iso-Thermal.” The iso-thermal condition, with close tolerance, super alloy tooling, special lubricants, and closely controlled titanium forging speeds and pressures, combine to produce net and near-net configurations that require little to no machining.
