Newly developed ATI 425 Alloy sheet can be produced with superior gauge control and improved surface finish, offering aircraft design engineers new opportunities for improving the manufacturability and weight-saving potential of aerospace components.
Allegheny Technology Industries of Pittsburgh said the material can be hot or cold rolled and annealed to produce sheet with strength comparable to conventional pack-rolled titanium 6-4 sheet, but with improved formability due to higher room-temperature ductility
Potential aerospace applications include fasteners, erosion strips, tail rotor blades, fuselage body panels and spars, and engine pylon and nacelle fittings.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
