Application of titanium in new industrial fields
Titanium alloy is a relatively young metal. It has a history of 60 or 70 years since it was developed. After entering the 20th century, traditional steel and aluminum can no longer meet the needs of aerospace, navigation, and other fields. In 1954 Titanium alloy materials were developed by American companies.
Titanium alloy is an alloy composed of titanium and other elements. Titanium alloy materials have the characteristics of lightweight, high strength, low elasticity, high-temperature resistance, and corrosion resistance. Titanium is also used, and there are many grades of titanium. Different industries will choose the appropriate grade of titanium according to their requirements. I believe that many people know this material because of a buzzword – “blind my titanium alloy eyes”! Many countries in the world have recognized the importance of titanium alloy materials, have successively carried out research and development on them, and have put them into practical applications. Let’s take a look at the application of titanium alloy in design. Lamborghini Lamborghini Aventador Estatura GXX uses a lot of carbon fiber and aviation-grade titanium alloy.

Titanium “Devil” Motorcycle
3D printed titanium alloy bicycle frame Renishaw, the only metal additive manufacturing company in the UK, has teamed up with Empire Cycles, a British bicycle design, and manufacturer, to produce a 3D printed metal frame, using titanium alloy as the printing material. Thanks to topology optimization technology, the frame is not only stronger but also lighter, one-third lighter than normal materials. The shape can be adjusted at any time during the production of the frame, and it is more customizable and can be adjusted for each batch of products.

3D Printed Titanium Headphones Japanese hi-fi company Final Audio Design (FAD) has partnered with NTT Data Engineering Systems and Probox Japan to design and manufacture the world’s first mass-produced 3D printed titanium headphones, dubbed ” Final Audio Design LAB 01″. Its casing was printed by NTT using an EOSINT M 280 3D printer from Germany’s EOS, a selective laser sintering (SLS) system for metal parts, made from titanium alloy Ti64 powder.
ID Mouse ID Mouse was designed by Intelligent-design in the Netherlands. The surface is made of titanium alloy, the metal wire drawing treatment is nobler, and the resin material is added. It is also worth mentioning that the mouse wheel uses the metal neodymium (Neodymium) that we are not familiar with. The material of “King of Permanent Magnet” is used in electronic machinery and other industries with excellent performance. There are also black and white options on the side of the mouse, which are simple and simple.
