Why are Titanium Alloys Preferred in the Aerospace Industry?

Titanium alloys outperform all other metallic materials used in the forging process. Titanium alloy forging is most commonly utilised in the aerospace industry. This is due to its high melting point and diminished heat conductivity.

It combines exceptional strength-to-weight ratios, low density, and corrosion resistance in one package. This material is forged particularly for rotating parts in aeroplanes, such as engine discs and shafts, and is used as an aluminium replacement.

Additionally, titanium possesses a low thermal expansion rate, allowing it to maintain its shape with a tight tolerance. As a consequence of these factors, demand for titanium alloys in the aerospace industry has grown, impelling Forged Carbon Steel demand.
