Titanium Alloy Optimization for Additive Manufacturing
TS-036918 — Modifies titanium alloys to reduce or prevent columnar grain structures in additive manufacturing
Titanium alloy components produced by current additive manufacturing (AM) techniques may lead to columnar grains, which introduce undesirable anisotropic material properties to the structure. Additional steps can reduce or eliminate these properties, but the processes are costly and limit direct p…

Method and Device to Monitor & Control Efficiency of the Friction Welding Process
TS-015293 — A device that can be readily attached to inertia or direct drive friction welding equipment to determine energy efficiency in-situ during welding, providing real-time feedback for improving control.
Friction welding is a category of solid-state welding processes that uses frictional heat generation at the weld interface to plasticize the work pieces and produce a metallurgical bond. The welding parameters used in large-scale industrial production are typically determined via trial and error. …
