Fine Tubes presents titanium tubing expertise for aerospace applications at RDMPMC 2020

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Fine Tubes will share its expertise in the manufacture of titanium tubes for aerospace applications at the National Conference on Research and Development in Material Processing, Modelling and Characterization 2020 (RDMPMC2020). The event will be hosted at the National Institute of Technology in Jamshedpur, India, from 26 to 27 August and streamed online, adhering to Covid-19 health and safety guidelines.

The precision tubing manufacturer is sponsoring the event, which attracts material processing, modelling and characterization experts from around the world and is being held virtually for the first time ever. Dr Rahul Bhattacharya, Technical Specialist at Fine Tubes, presents ‘Development of Titanium Tubes for Aerospace Applications’ at the two-day event.

Dr Bhattacharya’s presentation will focus on the production of titanium tubes and associated engineering and technical challenges. It will also cover developments in die design development for improved tube quality and the metallurgical requirements for high-performance titanium tubing in critical aerospace applications.

Fine Tubes is one of a small handful of suppliers qualified to produce high-pressure titanium tubing deployed in the demanding hydraulic systems of the Airbus A350. Its high-strength tubes have also been used in engines and airframes of major commercial and defense aircraft programs, as well as pioneering space programs.

Dr Bhattacharya says of the event: “We are honoured and delighted have the opportunity to present our work around titanium tube manufacture and development to the prestigious audience at this year’s RDMPMC event. The fact that it is to be held virtually only adds to the scope of the event and widens its access to experts and decision-makers around the world.”

RDMPMC 2020 is being organised by the Department of Metallurgical Materials and Engineering in association with the Department of Production and Industrial engineering at the National Institute of technology Jamshedpur. The event will welcome a number of keynote speakers, including Dr Bhattacharya from Fine Tubes, who will address delegates on a range of topics related to metallurgy and material processing, modelling and characterization.

Fine Tubes is one of five business units that make up AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP): a division of AMETEK specialising in advanced metal products that include precision strips, ultra-thin foils, specialty shaped wires, atomized metal powders, precision tubes and clad plate.
