Traditionally seen as a specialist aerospace material, titanium is now expanding into non-aerospace areas, such as sporting goods, automotive, medical, architectural, oil and gas, and land-based military equipment. Titanium has great potential to improve performance in both aerospace and non-aerospace applications. Titanium alloys offer an outstanding combination of properties, including high strength, density 40 percent less than steel, elevated temperature capability up to 600 degrees C, and corrosion resistance four times better than stainless steel. In recent years new processing technologies such as superplastic forming, have demonstrated that titanium can be cost-effective in applications previously not considered. The level of understanding and the amount of information available on the application of both new and traditional manufacturing techniques for titanium component technology is increasing rapidly. The papers presented in "Cost-Effective Titanium Component Technology for Leading-Edge Performance" bring together the latest thinking in titanium component design and manufacturing, demonstrating how titanium technology can offer state-of-the-art performance and substantial reductions in the cost of titanium.
