We are able to cast some of the largest and most complex titanium aerospace components in the world.
In collaboration with leading aerospace primes, Castings Technology helps to identify the challenges and value streams associated with casting large-scale near-net shape components in titanium. We have a proven refined and enhanced casting process which reassures engineers that casting can create lower buy-to-fly ratios for a wide range of structural components.
Cti assists companies considering a transfer of manufacturing from forged, fabricated or machined parts to cast components for the production of large-scale near net shape designs. The cost savings with near-net shape castings can be significant, with less material and shortened lead times. Buy-to-fly ratios can be improved from 5:1 with typical forged components reduced by up to 1.5:1 via the cast route. Titanium castings can be proven to produce superior material properties to both forged and machined.
Castings Technology constantly reviews alternative manufacturing technologies, delivering highly complex components realising reductions in; weight, costs, lead time and emissions.
