Ti PM HIP
Synertech and LNT can produce and supply PM HIPed Ti 6-4 blanks (regular shapes and Near Net shape (NNS) preforms) for machining with the excellent lead time of 5-6 weeks at competitive prices under AMS 4994 and ASTM B265-11 using cost efficient Ti 6-4 alloyed powders, but for applications not requiring special specs (like Honeywell or Boeing), i.e. for military, rockets, electronics, chemical industry, power generation and commercial applications.
We had started this initiative 15 years ago with Rolls-Royce and they had confirmed higher design allowables for the PM HIP Ti 6-4.
Our typical mechanical properties compared to ASTM B265-11 are:
The typical chemical composition can be provided by request (Material Certificate MC-19-0971)
The typical micro-structures are
As HIPed (1650F, 3 hours) condition
HIPed and annealed (1350F, 4 hours) condition
and the need of Mill Anneal is debatable as there is no need to homogenize the material, but just in case , this can be done.
