(1) Application of Titanium Alloy Additive Manufacturing Technology in Aerospace
Additive manufacturing technology was first applied to US carrier fighter planes in 2001. Through titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology, aircraft load-bearing structural parts were produced and applied to aviation production. In 2011, the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom produced an overall frame including the wings, control panels and doors of the drone through additive manufacturing technology. After 2012, the application of titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology in the aviation field has achieved unprecedented development. Titanium alloy parts have not only been widely used in aircraft manufacturing, but new types of titanium alloy materials have begun to be used in space equipment such as rockets and space shuttles. Application, the parts produced by titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology greatly reduce the number of welds between aerospace equipment. Due to the higher strength of titanium alloy, the safety of aerospace equipment is greatly improved. Relevant departments and scientific research institutions in my country are also constantly researching titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology, which has now been applied in the aviation field. my country's aircraft wings and main bearing components produced by the use of titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology meet the corresponding technical requirements and are used in aircraft manufacturing. In 2013, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics produced the main bearing components of titanium alloy aircraft through titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology, which passed the technical verification and carried out the installation review, which made my country the world's first master the design of the main bearing components of titanium alloy aircraft The country of manufacture indicates that my country's titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology has entered the world's leading position.
(2) Application of titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology in the field of national defense
In the production process of national defense weapons, the material performance requirements of weapons are high, and the precision of parts is also high. The U.S. Navy is studying the design of additive manufacturing technology on aircraft carriers, using the aircraft carrier as a large-scale weapons production plant to produce the necessary weapons and equipment according to needs and requirements. At the same time, the US Army is also developing a "mobile parts hospital" to achieve rapid repair and rapid production of weapon parts to meet the needs of the battlefield. my country is also stepping up research on the application of titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology in the field of national defense, realizing rapid and sophisticated weapon production, and promoting the development of national defense technology.
(3) Application of Titanium Alloy Additive Manufacturing Technology in Medical Devices
In modern medicine, titanium alloy technology has been applied, such as artificial joints. With the improvement of medical standards, people also put forward higher requirements for the application of artificial joints or other composite materials in the body. These materials used in the human body should have better contact and compatibility, and should also complete the corresponding Function. The artificial joint produced by the titanium alloy additive manufacturing technology ensures that the joint has a good wear-resistant interface, and at the same time can be well compatible with the bone tissue, improving the quality and medical level of the artificial joint.
At present, titanium alloy products have been applied in many fields. The structure of these products is relatively complex, the variety is small, the batch is small, and the performance requirements are high. The traditional manufacturing technology cannot meet the requirements of these products, while the additive manufacturing technology can meet the requirements of titanium alloy products. Manufacturing technology and performance requirements have been widely used.
