Why should you choose machined titanium for your project?

Titanium is an excellent material for engineering projects due to its many advantages. Its superior strength-to-weight ratio makes it more robust and lighter than most other metals. In addition, titanium is highly resistant to corrosion, even in harsh environments, making it useful for marine and offshore applications. Its biocompatibility and non-toxicity make it a popular medical implant and equipment choice. Finally, titanium can be precision machined easily, allowing for complex designs and tight tolerances.

Finishes for machined titanium

Depending on the desired appearance, durability, and functionality, several finishes can be applied to machined titanium. One standard finish is a satin finish, which can be achieved by sandblasting to create a uniform, matte surface. For a more decorative look, titanium can be anodized in various colors using an electrolytic process that thickens the natural oxide layer on the surface of the metal. Alternatively, polishing can create a reflective, mirror-like finish that enhances the appearance of intricate designs or features. Finally, a bead-blasted finish can provide a textured, non-slip surface ideal for specific applications such as medical or aerospace equipment. Ultimately, the choice of finish will depend on the intended use and aesthetic preferences for the titanium component.
