Titanium Sheet Metal Fabrication

Titanium, recognized by ‘Ti’ on the periodic table, is not just another metal; it embodies strength, corrosion resistance, and exceptional temperature resilience. Whether in its pure state—with minute traces of iron and oxygen—or as part of a potent alloy, titanium raises the bar of robustness. Dive deep into the world of Titanium Sheet Metal Fabrication and discover an unmatched synergy of durability and lightness. Titanium stands unmatched from the intricate demands of medical instruments to the rugged aerospace sphere. Explore Titanium Sheet Metal solutions now and transform your projects into enduring masterpieces.


Titanium At a Glance

Application Titanium is an advanced material widely used in the aerospace and medical industries. Its applications include medical implants, airframes, and parts used in highly corrosive industrial environments.
Advantages Excellent strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion-resistant, biocompatible
Disadvantages Costly, Can be difficult to machine
Lead Time Lead time is generally a minimum of 3 days. However, this can increase depending on the titanium used or if the parts are manufactured internationally.
Tolerances Machining tolerances depend on the titanium used. However, a tolerance of 0.005 in (0.13mm) is generally achievable.
Wall Thickness A minimum wall thickness of 0.03 in (0.8mm) is achievable. This can vary depending on the ratio of wall thickness to planar dimension. The minimum wall thickness is also affected by the specific grade of titanium.
Max Part Size The maximum size of the part depends on the available machines and the part complexity.

Titanium (Grade 2)

Titanium (Grade 2) is distinguished by its almost pure composition, boasting a remarkable 99% unalloyed titanium. With this purity level, it naturally stands out for its outstanding corrosion resistance, especially in aqueous environments, positioning it as a top choice where protection against corrosion is paramount. Beyond its resistance, this grade simplifies machining processes, a noticeable advantage over other titanium counterparts. Dive deeper into its applications, and you’ll find its signature in critical components such as those used in desalination processes and the world of medical implants. When you search for titanium that combines purity with performance, Grade 2 is a compelling contender.

Titanium (Grade 2) Properties

Tensile Strength, Yield (MPa)


Fatigue Strength (MPa)


Elongation at Break (%)


Hardness (Brinell)


Density (g/cm^3)


Titanium (Grade 5)

Titanium Grade 5, often recognized as the “workhorse” among titanium alloys, is distinguished by its aluminum and vanadium composition. This alloy showcases a harmonious strength and corrosion resistance balance, outshining most of its titanium counterparts. The versatility of Grade 5 makes it especially suited for high-stress applications. Its presence is felt across diverse sectors, from aerospace components to advanced sports equipment. Its resilience in the face of challenging environments and impeccable strength-to-weight ratio mark it as a preferred choice for those demanding both performance and durability.

Cost-saving Design Tips

Optimal Material Selection: Not all metals created for sheet metal fabrication are equally cost-effective and efficient. Prioritize understanding the specific requirements of your project. While some metals excel in certain conditions, they may falter in others. A comprehensive understanding of their reactions in diverse environments can be crucial. Consult with a Fabrication Pro for insights.

Adherence to DFM: Embracing the DFM (design-for-manufacturing) ethos is pivotal when sketching out designs for sheet metal parts. Familiarize yourself with essential design principles to harness the full potential of fabrication methods without inflating costs.
