Flying high in metallurgy: Titanium, the metal of the gods

Titanium - the metal of the gods, an element of superlatives. Due to its outstanding physical and chemical properties, the innovation potential of titanium for industry, aerospace and medicine is enormous. However, we also encounter the element, which is associated with luxury, quite often in everyday life: In outdoor and sports articles, jewelry, watches, cell phones, notebooks, etc., titanium is found more often than we think.

It was precisely this potential of the element of the gods that was the subject of the 26th training seminar on "Titanium and titanium alloys" on March 16 and 17, 2022.

As in previous years, the fully booked places at the online live event showed that research activity and demand in the community in this subject area remain high. Around 60 metallurgists, engineers and scientists as well as metallographers and technicians from the fields of research, development, manufacturing, application and sales had booked a place at the seminar. Prof. Dr. Christoph Leyens, Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Radiation Technology IWS and TU Dresden, Dr. Manfred Peters, former German Aerospace Center e.V. (DLR), and renowned experts from research and industrial practice guided the audience during the two-day event through the fundamentals, processing and application possibilities of titanium and its alloys. Special attention was paid to current developments such as titanium aluminides and additive manufacturing processes.

The next edition of the advanced training will take place on March 15-16, 2023. The possibility to register will be available in a few days via the DGM homepage.

The DGM has been convinced by the high popularity and the positive response of the MatWerk community: the success of this advanced training seamlessly continues the previous years. Our thanks go to Prof. Dr. Christoph Leyens and Dr. Manfred Peters, who always enrich our association work with their commitment.
