Warm Compacting Behavior of Pure Titanium Powders
Warm compacting behaviors of pure titanium powders were studied. The results show that warm compaction can be applied to titanium powders. The green densities obtained through warm compaction are generally higher than obtained through cold compaction at the same pressure. The optimal warm compacting temperature is about 140 . At the compacting pressure of 500 Mpa, the ejection force of titanium powders through warm compaction is 32.4% lower than through cold compaction. At the same pressure, the effective compression force through warm compaction is bigger than one through cold compaction. In addition, the densification mechanism of warm compaction was discussed.
