Ti-6-4

Titanium Alloy 64, also known as Ti64, Ti-6Al-4V, 6Al-4V titanium, or Grade 5, is an α+β titanium alloy considered the most commonly used titanium alloy in the industry. The high strength-to-weight ratio and its temperature resistance makes this alloy desirable for many industrial applications..

Why is MELD unique for Titanium?

MELD is unique among additive methods for creating large scale parts with wrought properties.  MELD printing eliminates the need for expensive, slow-to-make forging dies to test new designs. It allows companies to replace the standard forging lead time of >1 year with a printing lead time as short as a few days.
