Types Of Titanium Fasteners

History of Titanium Titanium is a metallic element that was discovered in 1791 in Cornwall, Great Britain by William Gregor, who was a geologist and clergyman. It was found in a mineral and had to be extracted by undergoing different processes, such as heating the mineral ore in the presence of carbon to yield titanium […]

Inconel Superalloys

Inconel is a group of superalloys that are nickel-chromium-based austinites. Its alloys are commonly utilized in processes that require high temperature. In the 1940s, some Wiggin Alloys research teams in Hereford, England developed it for the creation of the Whittle jet engine. There are many different types of inconels, and they vary in their compositions.

Titanium Tube Production

The production of titanium tube follows a similar approach to that of over metals. The key difference in the materials production comes at the early phases when the raw material is processed. The process known as the Kroll Process is the steps taken to turn titanium raw material (the sponge) into a refined state from
