TCI Precision Metals’ titanium machine-ready blanks that cut the overall cost of producing parts are available in custom sizes from plate to forged block. The company offers titanium machine-ready blanks for the aerospace/defense, medical and dental industries and is certified to AS 9100B, one of the aerospace industry’s highest standards.

The blanks allow production to start immediately, meaning they can be loaded directly into the machine without prep operations, such as sawing, grinding, flattening or squaring. This results in less time spent on multiple setups and adjusting fixture offsets, which can save 15 percent per part and more, the company says. By ending prep time and minimizing setup time, operators and machines are more productive and throughput capacity is increased. In many cases, an entire month of machine time has been freed up for additional production.

These machine-ready blanks arrive with tolerances guaranteed as close as ± 0.0005” dimensionally and ± 0.0002” for flatness, squareness and parallelism, the company says. The blanks are processed using precision sawing, double-disc grinding, Blanchard grinding, duplex milling and sub operations, such as flattening, deburring and wet timesaving.
