Materials > Titanium(TC4)
Titanium is a versatile material that is widely used for medical applications due to its biocompatible composition. Titanium 3D printing is a good option for medical implants as the parts can be made hollow and can feature complex surface geometries that act as attachment points for bone and tissue growth. In addition to this, its excellent strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance make it a popular material in the aerospace industry.
For metal 3D printing processes like DMLS, SLM, and EBS, the powder of Ti6Al4V alloy is used. It has a particle size of between 45 and 100 microns. Thanks to the vast opportunities of additive manufacturing, this material is used for creating complex parts and customized implants. 3D printed titanium parts are strong and relatively durable, though they will appear weaker and more porous than machine or formed ones.
