New aerospace casting milestone for UK’s sole titanium caster

Castings Technology International (Cti) has reached a new milestone by producing the first large-scale, centrifugally-manufactured, high-integrity component.

The UK-based specialist – a supplier of difficult to- source, low volume castings to the high value manufacturing sector – used its considerable expertise to produce a demonstration inter casing by pouring 250kg of molten titanium into moulds rotating at 200 rpm.

The 600mm diameter, near net shape casting is similar to those used in engines powering large turboprop aircraft and short-haul commercial jets.

Cti’s success builds on its previous experience of making safety-critical, centrifugally-cast titanium components and is a major step towards its goal of making the largest centrifugally cast titanium aerospace components in Europe.
