Probably the largest titanium casting ever poured into a ceramic shell

9th April 2021

Castings Technology International (Cti) has recently produced the largest single component ever cast by the company in Commercially Pure titanium and probably the largest titanium part poured into a ceramic mould.

With an envelope of 1000mm square by 600mm high and requiring over 1.2 tonnes (2,650lbs) of metal to be melted, the casting showcases several novel casting techniques developed in-house at Cti; the heart of cast metal innovation.

This casting was part of an order from a Japanese OEM and will be used by their client in an industrial pump that handles highly corrosive media at elevated temperatures. Titanium casting production is complex and requires expertise not only in metallurgy, but advanced foundry methodology.

Involved in the production of this titanium casting were George Appleby who joined CTi as an apprentice in 2018 and his training and development has led to him running the one of the largest ceramic shelling rooms in the world.  Vilma Klimaviciene whose first role in engineering also started with CTi in 2018 works in the Titanium Finishing department.

Made in Sheffield and being exported to Japan this week where the machining and assembly will take place.
