New system for straightening titanium plates


At Christmas, a new production line with a straightening machine from G + K was inaugurated in a production plant of VSMPO, a producer of titanium semifinished products. The system is excellent for directing titanium plates.

Titanium is particularly valued for its low density combined with high strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Pure titanium can reach an ultimate tensile strength of up to 740 N/sq mm, and an alloy like LT 33, containing aluminium, vanadium and tin, reaches 1,200 N/sq mm.
