Titanium Applications– Problems The cost of titanium preparation can be high because it’s difficult to process and extract. This makes it difficult for it to become popular on a large scale. MIM, or metal injection molding is a type of near-net molding technology. This technology was created by the introduction of modern plastic injection molding technology to the field of powdermetallurgy. However, the majority of titanium MIM materials are made from expensive, spherical, titanium powder. This limits their large-scale use and increases final product costs.
Low Cost Titanium HydrideLow cost titanium hydride pulverized powder has been used in place of spherical. It was tested during vacuum sintering. An irregular form of titanium hydride can decrease catalytic degreasing rates and increases the carbon- and oxygen content in sintered samples. TiC is produced by sintering. This improves the samples’ strength, hardness, friction resistance, and durability. Study results have demonstrated that the appropriate addition of titanium hydroide powder to the titanium MIM can lower the final cost. It has potential for use in wearable medical devices as well.
