White Paper - Formability of Titanium Ti-6Al-4V sheets at moderate temperature combined with high-pressure

Costly and time-consuming high-temperature forming methods have limited the use of Ti-6Al-4V to highly stressed components in narrowly specialized and small volume applications, ideal for applications where less than ~1000 parts per year is required, and in vide varieties. A new forming technology, High Pressure Warm Forming process (HPWF) combines high pressure with a moderately elevated temperature for a more rapid and cost-effective forming of aerospace-grade titanium parts.
