Recycling of Ti alloy machining chips

arcMELTER was used to prepare the ingots from machining chips formed during the CNC machining process. Ingots can be machined to a specific diameter and used as a feedstock for severe plastic deformation process. Thanks to the usage of getter in the process the inert atmosphere was additionally purified prior to homogenization process of the machining chips. The combination of arcMelter technology with getter purification and SPD processing represented a significant advancement in materials science and manufacturing. It enabled the efficient utilization of machining chips, a byproduct of CNC machining, transforming them into high-quality feedstock with tailored properties. This closed-loop approach not only reduced waste but also contributed to the sustainability and cost-effectiveness of metal production processes.

Metal Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing 101
Additive Manufacturing is a process of creating objects by adding material layer by layer, in contrast to traditional subtractive methods that remove material from a solid block. Metal Additive Manufacturing specifically involves the use of hard-to-machine metals to produce parts and components using bottom-up approach. This method allows for greater design flexibility, material efficiency, and the production of complex geometries that would be impossible or extremely difficult with conventional manufacturing techniques.
