Titanium Generation joint venture focuses on titanium processing

October 12, 2017

Germany’s MUT Advanced Heating GmbH and Element 22 GmbH have established Titanium Generation GmbH (TiGen), a joint venture focusing on heat treatment and thermal debinding & sintering for titanium powder processes, such as metal Additive Manufacturing and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).

TiGen will offer its customers equipment for the heat treating, debinding and sintering of AM and MIM titanium components. In addition to equipment, the company will offer engineering support for the development of sintering profiles and settings for titanium products, as well as general engineering support and peripheral devices where required.

Under the joint venture, MUT will utilise its experience as a producer of equipment for thermal debinding & sintering and heat treatment for metals such as titanium, while Element 22 offers thirty years’ experience in titanium Powder Metallurgy.

The equipment and engineering solutions offered by TiGen have been developed by MUT and Element 22 with a focus on efficient production with low operational costs. According to TiGen, these solutions also make it possible to achieve superior material properties.

Some of the titanium MIM and AM components made using TiGen furnaces are reportedly in use in medical devices and implants, on commercial aeroplanes and in other components produced at high volumes.
