China's new 3d titanium printing are a micro Forging and Casting Sync Composite Device. The technology is smart micro casting and forging.
The technology combines metal casting and forging technology to significantly improve the strength and ductility of metal molds, thereby expanding their service lives and reliability. Combining 3D printing, casting and forging also contributes to stronger parts and added toughness; improved product lifecycles and better reliability, according to the inventors.
The team said its smart micro casting and forging is an innovation will be useful in the aerospace, manufacturing and automotive industries, among others. The technology can also be used to create thin-walled metal components that can be used in jet aircraft.
