China’s Fourth Seminar for Advanced Technology in the Titanium Industry was closed on 22nd August in Chengdu.
Jointly held by Sichuan University, Chongqing University, and the Metal institute of Sichuan Province, this is the most influential activity in the titanium industry. More than 200 scholars and experts attended the seminar and exchanged their ideas about innovative techniques, equipment and products of titanium alloy at home and abroad. Titanium alloy 3D printing enterprise, Aviation Matt Powder Metallurgical Science and Technology from Beijing was also invited to the seminar.
Over the past few years, 3D printing has become a major application for titanium. 3D printing technology has provided titanium alloy with a brand new way of molding, thus producing a wide range of high quality metal products. This is especially true in aeronautics and astronautics, and in medical treatment areas where titanium alloy 3D printing has been showing more and more application value.
Aviation Matt Powder Metallurgical Science and Technology is one of the very few manufacturers that could independently produce titanium alloy powder for 3D printing in China. Its general manager Gao Zhengjiang was invited to the symposium and delivered a report addressing “The preparation techniques of the spherical titanium alloy powder and its 3D printing applications,” which was spoken highly of by the experts present.
Aviation Matt Powder Metallurgical Science and Technology uses the independently produced induction electrode aerosol device with high capacity and low costs to prepare the spherical titanium alloy powder that is up to the standard of 3D printing materials. The sphericity of this powder is as high as 90% and the oxygen is controlled between 0.07-0.13%. From this aspect, Aviation Matt Powder Metallurgical Science and Technology is indeed technically leading in the country.
The government guide of the implementation of industrial projects was released by the Ministry of Industry and Information in China. Its outlining goal was to achieve localization in critical and basic materials such as high-performance metal powder used for 3D printing in aeronautics and astronautics.
The Seminar for Advanced Technology in the Titanium Industry was a strategic move to guide companies toward the domestic goals laid out in the aforementioned government guide. We will stay tuned to see what new projects come out of the industry as a whole.
