Praxis Technology: Taking the next step in the commercialisation of high performance TiMIM alloys

Praxis Technology has for many years been at the forefront of the development of titanium Metal Injection Moulding for medical and consumer applications. As Praxis’ Joe Grohowski and Paul Sheffield explain, the company is now building on the knowledge gained in commercialising Ti-6Al-4V by exploring the potential of higher performance materials such as Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo, Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al and Ti-5Al-5V-5Cr-3Mo. These materials were selected to address the demand for Ti alloys with improved tensile strength and creep resistance.
