Swiss-type Automatic Lathes with up to 11 axis are used for turning operations in Nordic Titanium company with additional milling and deep drilling functions. The technology is used to cut away material from a solid workpiece. A lathe rotates the material against tools that trim corners and edges to cut the piece down to a desired shape or measurement.
5-axis CNC milling machines are used in Nordic Titanium for milling operations. Milling is the process of machining using rotating cutters to remove material by advancing a cutter into a workpiece.
Water jet cutting is a manufacturing process that uses high pressure jets of water provided by pressurizing pumps that deliver a supersonic stream of water and special sand to cut and shape various types of materials. This technology is a cold cutting method which prevents material distortion and formation of heat affected zones.
Nordic Titanium uses many different measuring equipment for nondestructive product inspection including special and accurate optical measuring equipment and coordinate measuring machine.
Laser welding is a process used to join together metals or thermoplastics using a laser beam to form a weld.
Laser marking is a marking method that uses a focused laser beam to alter the surface of a target. This method is used for marking or labeling both metal and plastic products.
Tumbling (grinding, polishing)
Tumbling consists of submitting the parts to vibration or rotation while in the presence of media. The media is specially designed to cause friction with the parts, and in effect grind or polish the parts in a controlled manner.
Glass blasting is the process of applying some type of grit or blast media to a surface, using pressurized air to propel it. As the media brushes against the surface, it wears the surface down and often takes away the top layer of material.
Several high speed hydraulic stamps are used in Nordic Titanium for hot forging workpieces. Hot forging is a production process which hammers metal between two dies to form the desired shape. The process begins with a workpiece, which is heated up to 75% of its melting temperature, then forged between dies to the desired shape and size.
Metal forming is a manufacturing process used to convert the workpiece with desired shape and size by applying an external force on the plate, strip, pipe and profile to produce a plastic deformation or seperation by pressing the machine and die.
Grinding is an abrasive machining process that uses a grinding wheel or grinder as the cutting tool. Grinding is used to finish workpieces that must show high surface quality and to produce very fine finishes and very accurate dimensions. It is usually better suited to the machining of very hard materials than is “regular” machining.
Thread rolling is essentially a cold forging operation. The thread rolls, when forced onto the component, form the thread root, the displaced material flowing outward to fill the rolls and form the thread crest. The cold forging process enables the thread to withstand greater tensile, shear and fatigue loadings. Also a hardening of the thread surface occurs improving it’s wear characteristics.
Welding is a fabrication process whereby two or more parts are fused together by means of heat forming a join as the parts cool.
Heat treatment is the process of heating metal without letting it reach its molten, or melting, stage, and then cooling the metal in a controlled way to select desired mechanical properties. Heat treatment is used to either make metal stronger or more malleable, more resistant to abrasion or more ductile.
Ultrasonic cleaning is a procedure for high-quality cleaning, utilizing ultrasonic energy to scrub the parts and a liquid solvent to rinse away the residue and loosened particulate matter.
Packaging in clean room with controlled environment (ISO 8 and ISO 9)
Nordic Titanium premises are equipped with clean rooms with controlled environment which complies to ISO 8 and ISO 9 classes according to ISO 14644.
Chemical treatment (pickling, anodizing)
Chemical treatment involves processes that create thin films of sulfide and oxide by means of a chemical reaction and also used for pickling.

The new Haas VF-3YT/50-taper VMC provides the heavy cutting capacity of a 50-taper machine in a mid-size footprint. It has a 1016 x 660 x 635 mm work envelope and a 1321 x 584 mm table – up 152 mm in Y over the standard Haas VF-3. A larger base casting provides the extended Y-axis travel, yet the machine’s footprint is only slightly larger than the standard VF-3. Heavy cast-iron construction yields the rigidity and stability necessary for heavy cutting, and the wide T-slot table provides plenty of room for fixturing and large parts.

Micro-waterjet cutting does not differ in technology from normal waterjet cutting. Micro-waterjet cutting is also a cold, thermoneutral separation process (pure water and abrasive processes). The differences lie in the size of the cutting head and (in the abrasive process) in the size of the mixingchamber for the garnet sand. Micro-waterjet cutting was developed by Walter Maurer and his Waterjet AG team in response to the high demand for miniaturized, precision mechanical components in mechatronics, measurement and control technology, aerospace, medical technology and watchmaking. Through continuous optimization and further development, the cutting jet (4000 bar, 3-fold sound velocity) could be reduced to 0.2 mm. The process combines the precision advantages of laser cutting with those ofwater: There are no thermal stresses in the material, the micro-structure of the material and its material strength are retained. Usually a CAD drawing and the parameters material, thickness and cut quality are sufficient to start the work process.
