The process—A breakthrough in titanium processing
MetCon's patented electrochemical process replaces multiple, costly, high yield-loss conditioning steps with low yield loss steps. Conditioning is done in a tank utilizing a proprietary electrolyte and unconventional rectification. Cooling cracks are opened and crack tips are blunted, allowing further processing with substantially less bulk metal removed than traditional grinding, machining or acid pickling.
The process works with large bloom, intermediate octagons or round-cornered squares, smaller billet and rolling mill input, and small cross sections. Regardless what your current conditioning process is, MetCon can increase your yield of saleable product from 10% to greater than 20%.
