The process of titanium forging
1. Free Forging
2. Open Die Forging
3. Closed-Die Forging
4. No-Draft Forging
5. Multi-Die Forging
6. Parting Die Forging
7. Isothermal Die Forging
Before forging, the mold is heated to the forging temperature of the blank, and the temperature of the mold and the blank is consistent during the whole forging process, so that a large deformation can be obtained under the action of a small deformation force. Isothermal die forging and isothermal superplastic die forging are very similar, the difference is that before the latter die forging, the blank needs to be superplastic treatment, so that it has equiaxial grain.
The titanium alloy forging process is widely used in the aviation and aerospace manufacturing industries (isothermal forging process has been used to produce engine parts and aircraft structural parts), and it is also becoming increasingly popular in industrial sectors such as automobiles, electric power and ships.
Currently, the cost of titanium materials is very high, and many civilian fields have not fully recognized the charm of titanium alloys. With the continuous progress of science, the preparation of titanium and titanium alloy product technology will be more and more simple, and processing costs will decrease steadily. Additionally, the allure of titanium and titanium alloy products will be emphasized in an increasing number of industries.
