Metals

Titanium

Based on its many advanced applications in everything from aerospace to the marine and medical fields, it would be easy to consider titanium as a futuristic metal. That’s why many are surprised to learn that the world’s 4th most abundant metallic element was actually used in dentistry as early as the 1940s. Titanium is also found in meteors as well as both the Moon and certain stars.

Inductotherm Group companies around the world are expert in the thermal processing of titanium, frequently using the Vacuum Arc Remelting (VAR) systems engineered under the Consarc name, one of Inductotherm Group’s ten global brands.  We support multiple customers who use titanium in the manufacture of a wide list of products, including everything from high-end golf clubs to multiple medical products such as prosthetics, inner body devices and more.
