The combination of high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent mechanical properties, and corrosion resistance makes titanium the best material choice for many critical applications. This article commences with a description of the historical perspective of titanium casting technology. It discusses the various types of molding methods, namely, rammed graphite molding, and lost-wax investment molding. The article provides information on the casting design, melting, and pouring practices, and describes the microstructure, hot isostatic pressing, heat treatment, and mechanical properties of Ti-6AI-4V alloy. It also talks about the chemical milling and weld repair, and describes the product applications of titanium alloy castings. Tensile...
