The aerospace and the medical industries are both early adopters of additive manufacturing. The medical industry primarily uses Ti64 Grade 23/ELI (ASTM F3001), while the aerospace industry prefers Ti64 Grade 5 (ASTM F2924). The key differentiator between both grades is the oxygen content.
Join this webinar to learn how oxygen content varies across particle size distribution of titanium powder during storage, handling and printing. Re-use strategies and recycling methods to bring the oxygen content back into specification ranges will also be discussed.
