Lucideon Helps Determine Impact of Hot Isostatic Pressing on Fatigue Life of Ti-6Al-4V Component
A healthcare client was using additive manufacturing to produce Ti-6Al-4V components for orthopedic implants. The microstructure and static mechanical properties of these components were improved through the use of a HIP treatment, however the client was concerned about how this treatment impacted the long term fatigue life.
What We Delivered
Lucideon experts were able to leverage their experience with additive manufacturing to develop a qualification plan for these components which included coordinating component builds, HIP treatments and high cycle fatigue testing.
Value to the Client
The information provided to the client allowed them to further understand the material/product that they were producing and confidently select the post processing that was best suited for their application.
