Titanium

INGOTS

ZIROM produces ingots of various alloys in 2 diameters: 470 - 480 mm (approximately 1,600 kgs net weight) and 570 - 580 mm (approximately 3,200 kgs net weight) in 2VAR, 3VAR or EB-1+2VAR. The ingots from Titanium sponge including master alloys are produced in the VAR furnace of the company. The company has a vast expience in the production of ingots in a variety of grades (e.g.Ti 6-4 (Grade 5),Ti 6-4 Eli (Grade 23), Ti 3-2.5 (Grade 9), Ti 6-2-4-6, Ti 6-2-4-6 and many others), including Russian grades (e.g. OT-4, OT4-1, BT1-0, VT-10).


RECYCLING - THE CHALLENGE

Despite the many useful and innovative properties of Titanium, the big­gest challenge remains, that during the production cycle a lot of shav­ings and solids are being produced as well. This is caused firstly by the fact that Titanium and its alloys attract a lot of gases during melting or forging, if not processed in a protective athmosphere of Argon or Helium or in a Vacuum and, secondly, by the different shapes of pre-material, from which the finished parts have to be extracted. Fly-To-Buy ratios of 1:10 or 1:8 remain one of the biggest challenges of the industry.
 

RECYCLING AT ZIROM

As Recycling becomes more and more important, we process and recondition solids and shavings with our EB-CH to their previous condition. This helps our cus­tomers to be more competitve and to recycle their reverts in a controlled manner. With our EB-CH and a vast experience in reconditioning revert materi­als, ZIROM makes sure that the resulting material is as good as made from fresh material. ZIROM is one of the few recycling capacities in Europe.
