Titanium 10V-2FE-2AL Forging Bar Distributor

Titanium 10V-2FE-3AL bars are useful for many reasons, regulated in size for easy transport, storage, and machining. TItanium 10-2-3 Bars are formed by hot forging followed by a sequence of hot rolling, polishing the material, machining, extrusion, casting, welding, and even spinning the materials for aerospace and other construction applications. Choosing to use this metal means it can be highly workable although it may not be as cost effective for products that do not require these properties and which can be satisfied with other grades of titanium. Titanium bars deliver quality bulk material for further refinement per need.

Titanium 10V-2FE-3AL Distributor and Supplier

Ti-10V-2FE-3AL is a near-beta titanium alloy that has been mixed with elements like iron, aluminum, and vanadium. Its UNS designation is R56410. This alloy is related to a large family of titanium types which are used for their own ideal purposes. In particular, this version was developed primarily for use in airframe forging. Ti 10-2-3 is known for having a specialized combination of excellent high strength toughness as well as hot-die forgeability and deep hardenability. That combination is exactly why Ti-10V-2FE-3AL is a favored material in various aerospace and other engineering applications found within the industry. This specific alloy presents an unmatched combination of strengths as well as its potential for use in countless applications.
The history of titanium alloys generally starts in the 1950s. In particular, the Watertown Arsenal during this time began to research the use of titanium alloys in armors. The Watertown Arsenal would then later become part of the Army Research Laboratory. The 6AL-4V alloy that was generated was later classified as Grade 5 and was continually refined to produce other grades, including this Ti 10-2-3. By the end of 1947, there had only been about two tons of titanium produced annually. With some government incentives and drive for more aerospace development, that number reached to more than two million pounds annually in 1953. It was perfect timing, at the dawn of the space age, and soon mass-production became the norm for not just this particular line of titanium alloy or even metal for that matter. Eventually, different specifications were generated for the industries that use this alloy product. Those specifications are codified often under AMS and MIL-T codes, amongst others.

Chemistry of Titanium Ti-10V-2FE-3AL

The chemistry of this alloy consists of Molybdenum (Mo), Aluminum (Al), Zirconium (Zr), Tin (Sn), and Titanium (Ti). There are specifications for percentage by weight of these elements, such as Molybdenum (6%), Aluminum (6%), Zirconium (4%), Tin (2%), and Titanium (the balance). 6AL-2SN-4AZ-6MO has a density of 4.65 g/cm3 (or 0.168 lb/in3). The melting point is between 1595 and 1675 degrees C (or 2903 and 3047 degrees F). It has a Rockwell C hardness of 39, a 13% elongation at break, a shear modulus of 42.9 GPa (or 6220 ksi), an elastic modulus of 114 GPa (or 16500 ksi), and a Poisson's ratio of 0.33. This alloy also has a yield strength of 1120 MPa (or 162000 psi) and an ultimate tensile strength of 1210 MPa (or 175000 psi).
The specifications for Titanium 10V-2FE-3AL include AMS 4983, AMS 4984, AMS 4986, and AMS 4987. This grade of the alloy i.e. Titanium 10V-2FE-3AL should be machined at low speed with enough coolant and higher feed rates. It is also recommended that tools are capable of high-speed and that they have a tungsten carbide designation of C1-C4, or to be cobalt based. As for forming the alloy Titanium 10V-2FE-3AL, it works best with either hot or cold forming. Hot forming the material increases its ductility. If cold forming, a post-work annealing is recommended. It has a rating of fair for weldability. Besides Ti 1023's use in certain aerospace applications, the material is used for near-net-shape forging as well as for high strength components in airframes. It is found in such features as landing gear on account of its ductility, fracture toughness, and strength.
