Hot forming is a matched metal tool forming process that relies on time, temperature and pressure. Depending on the product being formed, those working directly with the product will determine the proper temperature of the blank, tool, and the pressure required to form the component.
This is extremely effective for forming high temperature alloys such as titanium, Inconel, and certain grades of stainless steel. The advantages of hot forming include:
- Increased accuracy due to the elimination of springback
- Complex shapes can be more easily formed with tighter radii
- Cracking is inhibited especially when forming titanium
- The process avoids the thinning of the material while forming
Why Is Titanium Used for Hot Forming?
The aerospace industry is a major user of titanium in their products. In fact, two-thirds of the amount of titanium produced is used exclusively in aircraft engines and frames. This may be because the metal itself is known for its high strength (30% stronger than steel and 100% stronger than aluminum) and low weight (50% lighter than steel).
With a solid resistance to corrosion and the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, titanium is a good choice within the industry for jet engines, firewalls, missiles and other aviation-related products.
