Substantial progress has continued in the US since the last (13th) World Titanium Conference with regards to titanium technology, products, processing, computational modeling tools and applications. Titanium components produced by additive manufacturing have been qualified and achieved production applications in commercial and military aircraft hardware. New high-performance titanium alloys have been developed for higher temperature service and applications requiring more demanding static and dynamic properties. Current production processes for titanium have been optimized, and new processes have been developed to further reduce cost and improve product quality. Titanium suppliers, OEM’s, government labs and academia are working closely together to address fundamental industry-wide issues. Computer modeling is now used extensively in industrial and research facilities to accelerate the pace and success of these developments.
