Frequently Asked Questions
1. What Is Titanium Powder Used for in Additive Manufacturing?
Powdered titanium has a wide variety of applications across multiple industries. In the aerospace industry, it’s used for manufacturing engine and turbine components, structural elements, and landing gears among others due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, which increases fuel efficiency. Powdered titanium is biocompatible, which makes it an excellent material for medical tools and implants. Titanium additive manufacturing is also used in the automotive industry for manufacturing parts that require wear resistance and high strength like valve seats and connecting rods.
2. Is Titanium Powder Stronger Than Steel Powder?
Steel powders are typically stronger than titanium ones, but ultimately, the strength depends on the alloy being used. Titanium is lighter than steel while offering significant strength. Certain Grade 4 and Grade 5 alloys such as the Ti-6Al-4V can exhibit strength that’s comparable — or even higher than — steel. The same goes for certain steel alloys such as advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) and ultra-high-strength steels (UHSS), which are used in the automotive industry for their exceptional strength.
