Over the past decade, titanium has grown rapidly in popularity across many different industries. Renowned for its light weight, strength and corrosion resistance, titanium is finding its way into many industries these days, such as aerospace, automotive and medical applications. The trade-off, of course is its higher price relative to alternative metals such as steel.
This is where STS Intelli comes in. We are experts at cold forming titanium and use intelligent, optimized predictions and design to create tooling for our titanium cold forging process. The result is minimal scrap, minimal energy costs and high-quality parts with the dimensions, tolerances and surface finishes you require. Let us share with you the benefits of cold forging titanium and explain to you how we are the perfect partner for your next titanium project.
The main advantage for cold forming titanium is the same as for cold forming other metals. Cold forming requires little energy input, as opposed to hot forming processes. The result is a lower cost and a more eco-friendly carbon footprint.
The titanium cold forging process also allows us to design our tooling and dyes to efficiently and effectively transform titanium into your desired shapes with minimal scrap. Thanks to our expertise in tooling design, we can provide many net dimensions and surfaces directly during the cold forming process and use secondary processes to achieve the final tolerances and surface finishes you require.
Some of these secondary processes include abrasive blasting, immersion washing, electroplating and shot peening. One of our expert custom cold forgers will sit down with you and discuss every aspect of your project and make sure we’re taking into account every last parameter when we’re designing our titanium cold forging process.
The result is the confidence that we can achieve high-quality parts from the very first off-tool parts with minimal tool adjustment. Reducing the validation and/or prototyping time is another way our micro cold heading company adds value to your project and offers you real savings. Add in the reduced energy costs relative to hot forging, and savings can approach 40 to 60 percent.
