Ben Jackson recently presented his research work with TiDA  at the 4th International Conference on Titanium Powder Metallurgy & Additive Manufacturing (PMTi) conference in Xian,  central China.

Ben’s paper was titled  “Additive Manufacturing of TiB reinforced Ti-6Al-4V: Microstructure and Hardness Modification”

This international conference was well supported from NZ with speakers from TiDA, University of Waikato, Wintec and the University of Auckland.  PMTi was a great opportunity to showcase New Zealand’s capability in powder metallurgy and additive manufacturing.  It was also a great experience to meet with international researchers in the field and build links into a massive global capability in international research companies and research groups.

Contact TiDA for further information regarding Ben’s work on the reinforcement of titanium alloy with titanium boride.
