Metal Injection Moulding of Titanium
A route to handle titanium specific challenges as oxygen and carbon sensitivity when applying Metal Injection Moulding is presented. It is shown that by appropriate processing components with excellent mechanical properties can be manufactured from Ti-6Al-4V alloy powder. In addition, alloy modification by simple powder metallurgical methods is performed in order to optimise the fatigue properties by changing the microstructure of the sintered part.
