Brief description The high production cost of titanium components has been the central issue that inhibits the large-scale industrial applications of titanium and its alloys, despite their outstanding properties. This project aims to develop an innovative titanium hydride injection moulding process that will enable the fabrication of intricate titanium components at low cost while ensuring excellent mechanical properties. The outcomes have the potential to transform the current manufacturing practice of small intricate titanium components for wide industrial applications. In addition, the project creates and delivers new advanced manufacturing technologies and skills urgently needed by the Australian industries for lifting productivity and economic growth.
