Precision CNC Titanium Machining
This titanium part used in the Optical Industry, is a good example of 4th and 5th axis precision machining of a small part with tight tolerances.
For precision titanium machining, Portland Precision Manufacturing is the company you can turn to with confidence. We work with all titanium grades and alloys, and can produce even the most complex titanium machined parts and titanium components at tolerances within ±0.0005” or better. We offer decades of experience in titanium machining, along with the custom metal finishing services your projects require.
Why Use Titanium?
The fourth most abundant metallic element in the earth’s crust, titanium exhibits a number of beneficial characteristics that make it the material of choice for countless applications, including those in the aerospace, chemical processing, medical, and marine industries.
Titanium is exceptionally strong and light weight—it is roughly 60 percent more dense than aluminum, but more than twice as strong, with ultimate tensile strength as good or better than most steel alloys. The material offers excellent ductility, is non-magnetic, and, thanks to its low thermal conductivity, is well-suited to high temperature applications. Titanium’s high fatigue limit provides long working life, even in challenging applications and environments.
Naturally occurring atmospheric passivation gives titanium components excellent corrosion resistance; the material can withstand extended exposure to dilute sulfuric and hydrochloric acids, chloride solutions, and most organic acids.
Titanium is considered the most biocompatible metal, thanks to its high resistance to corrosion caused by bodily fluids, its capacity for osseointegration, its bio-inertness, and its high fatigue limit. The metal is non-toxic, even in large doses, and does not play any natural role inside the human body. Used in dentistry since the 1940s, titanium machined parts are now utilized in a wide range of medical implants. And, because the material is non-magnetic, patients with titanium implants can be safely examined via MRI and similar processes; this makes titanium components ideal for long-term/permanent medical implants.
