This article is the second in a two-part series on cost-saving methods for the production of titanium components. Part 1, published in the September 2012 issue of AM&P, covered a number of powder metallurgy techniques, including press-and-sinter and both cold and hot isostatic pressing. Other near-net shape processes are described here, including additive layer manufacturing (ALM), metal injection molding (MIM), and spray deposition (SD). Examples are also given showing how titanium PM parts compare with cast and wrought components.
