Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal: it is as strong as some steels but is 45% lighter. It can be alloyed with other elements including aluminum, iron, vanadium and molybdenum to produce strong, lightweight alloys.

These properties make titanium and titanium alloys well suited for a wide variety of applications, including aerospace, satellite, defense, energy and instrument components. Thanks to its corrosion resistance, strength and low modulus, titanium is also the most bio-compatible of all metals, making it ideal for medical applications such as implants, surgical devices and prosthesis.

However, titanium is a difficult to machine material. Improper cutting tools and cooling methods can cause the material to soften during machining applications.

Although titanium is a difficult to machine material, at R&B Machine we welcome the most complex titanium machining applications. Our experience coupled with the latest five-axis machining centers, multi-axis tuning centers and wire & sinker EDMs allow us to keep the tightest tolerances on the most mission critical parts.
