Rolls-Royce researchers came to SLAC earlier this month as part of a team testing titanium and titanium alloys such as those used in engine parts, landing gear and other aircraft components.
A research group at Uppsala University, Sweden has developed a new responsive coating for implants used in surgery to improve their integration into bone and to prevent rejection. Neutron scattering experiments at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France have shown how a protein that promotes bone growth binds to this surface and can be released in a controlled way.
Jena (Germany) A trousers button, a coin or a watch can be dangerous for people with a nickel allergy. Approximately 1 in 10 Germans is allergic to the metal. "This raises the question of the safety of medical implants containing nickel," explains Professor Dr. Markus Rettenmayr of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany).
Today she took the first steps in her new 3D printed titanium shoes that were custom designed to fit her foot. They may be the key to stomping out foot disease and lameness in horses.
Alcoa has signed a multi-year supply agreement with Airbus valued at approximately $110 million for value-add titanium and aluminum aerospace forgings. Alcoa will produce the parts using its recently modernized 50,000-ton press in Cleveland, Ohio. This press uses state-of-the-art controls to meet stringent aerospace specifications and is uniquely capable of producing the world’s largest and most complex titanium, nickel, steel and aluminum forgings.
For the first time, low-cost titanium powders, developed by Metalysis, have been used to 3D print automotive parts.
If you want to get the most out of the sun, you have to improve the performance of the materials used.
DuPont today advanced its transformation to a higher growth, higher value company as its Board of Directors authorized management to execute a full separation of its Performance Chemicals segment, which includes the Titanium Technologies and Chemicals & Fluoroproducts businesses.
Alcoa, the leading supplier of aluminum solutions to the world's aerospace industry, and Russia’s VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation, the world's largest manufacturer of titanium ingots and forged products, have agreed to join forces to meet growing demand for high-end titanium and aluminum products for aircraft manufacturers worldwide.
The horse, dubbed by researchers as ‘Titanium Prints’, had its hooves scanned with a handheld 3D scanner this week.
