Tech Met has developed (and patented) unique surface texturing processes that can be applied on most materials (including titanium and cobalt chrome) implant devices. (read more)

Tech Met has extensive experience in the removal of steel and stainless steel “cans” from Hot Isostatic Pressed (HIP) and extrusion consolidated components. (read more)

The aircraft and aerospace industries continue to strive toward lighter, stronger and faster materials. Tech Met has been instrumental in providing innovative solutions to increasingly complex processes for milling exotic and stronger alloys. (read more)

Chemical milling can be used to remove unwanted surface conditions such as EDM recast layers, oxidation layers, heat affected layers, Alpha case and metal contamination. (read more)

Flat, as well as three dimensional curved surfaces can be precisely etched to tight tolerances of up to .00025". (read more)

Tech Met can use various techniques to produce etched patterns or printed art effects on large flat panels for architectural applications. Techniques include pattern screening or laser scribing of maskants to produce the desired pattern. (read more)

Chemical milling to produce progressively tapered thicknesses in sheet, bar and tube components made from any of the alloys that can be milled. Taper milling can be used to repair collapsed casings, liners or tubing, designed to clean without cutting or damaging the surfaces. Chemical taper mills are available in various sizes and configurations. (read more)

Reduce Weight - Maintain performance

Chemical Milling is the process of removing surface material using chemical dissolution. Tech Met can chemically mill features, size parts, remove weight and prepare surfaces by removing unwanted surface conditions. (read more)

Finishing and Surface Treatment Services

Tech Met has extensive experience in the removal of steel and stainless steel cans from Hot Isostatic Pressed (HIP) and extrusion consolidated components. This is an effective means of can removal for production parts or billets, or even for the recovery of HIP and extrusion consolidated scrap (read more)

Tech Met performs chemical milling primarily on titanium, hi-temp and ferrous alloy components, and some aluminum alloys. Alloys such as tantalum, copper, and magnesium are also processed. (read more)

Tech Met has developed (and patented) a unique surface texture used primarily on orthopedic implants. This surface promotes bone on-growth and osseointegration. This surface has been employed on both titanium and cobalt chrome components.

Other applications include enhanced bonding surfaces for metal to composite joining. (read more)
