Thank you for visiting our site.

Fiko Ltd has titanium mill in Kiev and produce following:

a)      titanium ingot / titanium ingots ASTM Grade 2, ASTM Grade 3, ASTM Grade 4, Ti6Al/4V, ASTM Grade 5, ASTM Grade 9 

b)      Titanium slabs  ASTM Grade 2, ASTM Grade 3, ASTM Grade 4, Ti6Al/4V, ASTM Grade 5, ASTM Grade 9 

c)      Titanium materials including: titanium bar / titanium bars, titanium sheets, titanium plates, titanium wire and titanium tubes.

Upon customer's request we can manufacture of titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slabs ASTM Grade1 and Grade2 with controlling oxygen content:

a) CP (commercially pure) titanium slab and ingot with low oxygen content  till 0.04-0.8%

b) With average oxygen content 0.12-0.15%

c) With general oxygen content in titanium ingot and titanium slab according to ASTM requirements.

 

Fiko Electron-Beam Metallurgical plant supplied following titanium slabs upon customer's request:  

a) titanium slabs  and titanium slab can be supplied turned

b) and titanium slabs  and titanium slab can be supplied not turned.

Fiko Electron-Beam Metallurgical plant will have possibility to melt slabs of nearly 12 000 kg mass.

It is the same situation with titanium ring, titanium flanges, titanium disks, titanium squares, and titanium billets. Depending on diameter

of titanium ring, titanium flange, titanium disk, titanium square or titanium billet it is taken corresponding diameter of titanium ingot or the specific size of titanium slab.

In case titanium ring, titanium flange, titanium disk, titanium square or titanium billet have to have mechanical properties so titanium slab or titanium ingot (titanium ingot / titanium ingots or titanium slabs) do not suit for them we should manufacture them from titanium bar / titanium bars both forged titanium bar / titanium bars and hot rolled titanium bar / titanium bars.

We melted titanium ingot / titanium ingots with length 1000mm and more. The new facility will be able to melt titanium ingot / titanium ingots up to 4000mm in length.

Titanium slabs and titanium slab is subdivided into following:

a) titanium slab /titanium slabs or titanium slab by width

b) titanium slab /titanium slabs or titanium slab by thickness

c) turned or not turned titanium slabs / titanium slab

Titanium slabs and ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and ingot are produced in different weight.

The weight of titanium ingot / titanium ingots produced by us before weighted 700 to 3200 kg. With new melting furnace we will have possibility to melt ingot / titanium ingots of nearly 12 000 kg mass.

The main parameters of titanium slabs and  ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and ingot depend on market demands. For production of titanium bar / titanium bars the most suitable will be titanium ingot dia 370mm, for rolling of titanium sheets and titanium plates the ingot / titanium ingots with dia 630-860mm are the best choice. Moreover titanium sheets and plates are better manufactured from titanium slab and titanium slabs.

The market dictates to manufacturer of titanium slabs and ingot / titanium ingots that its cause repartition of consumption market of titanium slabs and titanium ingot / titanium ingots:

a)      titanium slab and titanium slabs will be used only for production of titanium sheets and plates

b)      titanium slab /titanium slabs force out titanium ingot / titanium ingots from production market of titanium sheets and plates

c)      titanium ingot / titanium ingots take niche only for production of titanium bar / titanium bars, titanium tubes where titanium slabs cannot be used

d)      titanium slab /titanium slabs and ingot have common market of repartition- this is titanium ring, titanium billets, titanium flanges, titanium disks. Depending on their parameters titanium slabs or ingot / titanium ingots or titanium slab and ingot / titanium ingots could be used for production.

Very often customers require titanium ingot / titanium ingots Ti6Al-4V dia 200-250mm. Usually, such titanium ingot / titanium ingots are used in production of titanium golf clubs instead of more expensive titanium bar / titanium bars.

Depending on materials sizes customer needs different titanium slabs by width and length.

For example, Japanese manufacturers of titanium materials-titanium sheets, plates and also sheets in coil need different titanium slabs by width and length. So they manufacture titanium sheet in coil 600mm and more. For this reason they need different size slabs by width. Such titanium slab is needed for Japanese and Italian manufacturers for production titanium coil sheet. Globalization forces manufacturers of titanium slabs to specialize in production of titanium slabs by width or to have various crystallizers for production titanium slabs in depend on market of coil sheet and in the end the exact sizes of titanium slabs will be produced.

FIKOs new melting facility is also purposed for melting titanium slabs.

Titanium slabs will be produced in following dimensions

height of titanium slab - 400-500 mm

width of titanium slab - 1050-1325 mm

length of titanium slab - 4000 mm

Titanium slabs will be supplied either in turned (machined) condition or with non-machined surface.

FIKO metallurgical plant manufactures titanium ingot / titanium ingots both turned and not turned with dia 370, 400, 450, 510, 600, 630, 800 mm and titanium slabs both machined and non-machined and supplies such titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slabs to the market of Asia, Europe and America.

The control of quality of titanium slab /titanium slabs and ingot / titanium ingots,  titanium slab and ingot start with titanium sponge, titanium scrap and titanium cuttings quality control.

In manufacture of titanium slab /titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab, titanium ingot the following grades of titanium sponge are used TG-90, TG-100, TG-110, TG-120, and TG-130 and in exceptional cases TG-150. Titanium sponge should be supplied in pressurized drums and accompanied by quality certificate. The customer orders titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slabs, and titanium slab and titanium ingot with low or high oxygen content. Before melting of titanium ingot / titanium ingots or titanium slabs, titanium sponge should be pressed and sorted in accordance to customers demands regarding oxygen and iron content. The chemical composition of titanium sponge is checked by analyses and if the results conform to the figures indicated in certificate, the sponge is used in production of titanium ingot, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab, titanium slabs.

In case we have to melt titanium ingot / titanium ingots or titanium slabs, titanium ingot or titanium slab with high oxygen content 0.20-0.25%, then TiO2 is added to titanium sponge while pressing. After that titanium sponge is prepared for melting. After the titanium sponge are ready for melting it is passed from preparing raw material section to melting section of titanium ingot / titanium ingots or titanium slabs. 

At our plant titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slabs are melted by electron-beam method.

The process of manufacture of titanium ingot, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab, titanium slabs is rather laborious and difficult because there are no companies in Ukraine who could supply titanium scrap in prepared for melting condition.

of FIKO have to sort out titanium scrap thoroughly because the quality and purity of titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slabs depends on the quality of titanium scrap.

Our workers have to check every piece of titanium scrap since if the preparing division of titanium scrap make mistake so titanium ingot, titanium slab will be produced with the same chemical composition as titanium scrap.

Take into account a high coat of titanium slabs and ingot / titanium ingots and also weight of titanium slab and ingot so the mistake may cost expansive.

So Fiko Electron-Beam Metallurgical plant modernizes and improve technology of preparing of titanium scrap for melt of titanium slabs and titanium ingot / titanium ingots permanently.

FIKO metallurgical plant usually melts Ukrainian titanium scrap into titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slabs only of VT1-0, VT6 and PT3V grades, because in melting titanium scrap consisting of the pieces of titanium bar / titanium bars, sheets and plates some part of alloyed elements are burned out and it is necessary to add the ligature. Thats why the production of titanium ingot, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab, titanium slabs in OT4, OT4-0, OT4-1, VT3-1, VT5-1, VT14, VT16, VT20, VT22, VT23, PT1M, 5V alloy, PT7M is not profitable.

That is why we are interested in ASTM GRADE 1, ASTM GRADE 2, ASTM GRADE Ti6AL/4V scrap for production of titanium slabs and ingot / titanium ingots.

Moreover, titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slab /titanium slabs in OT4, OT4-0, OT4-1, VT3-1, VT5-1, VT6, VT6S, VT14, VT16, VT20, VT22, VT23, PT1M, 5V alloy, PT3V, PT7M should be double melted but it is not mean that titanium slabs cannot be produced from alloys for one melting.

This is the reason we are interested in partners from Europe, Japan, South Korea, and USA who supply titanium scrap (remains of titanium bar / titanium bars, titanium sheets and titanium tubes) ASTM Grade-1; Grade-2; Grade-3, Grade-4; Ti6Al/4V; Grade-5; Grade-9.

Titanium scrap from titanium bar / titanium bars, titanium sheets, titanium plates, and titanium tubes should be sorted and prepared for melting and supplied with quality certificate.

The best scrap for melting titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slabs if the scrap from titanium sheets and titanium plates, because titanium scrap from titanium bar / titanium bars and titanium tubes cannot be piled into melting boxes tight enough. The scrap from titanium sheets and titanium plates is preferable because one melting yields of titanium ingot or titanium slab from sheets plates scrap is more than from scrap of bar / titanium bars and tubes.

After melting of titanium ingot or titanium slab it is cooling stage. Then titanium ingot or titanium slab is turned. While turning the test samples are picked out for analysis of chemical composition of melted titanium ingot / titanium ingots or titanium slabs. Titanium turnings taken from definite titanium ingot or titanium scrap are forwarded to laboratory for analysis. Ultrasonic testing is carried out only for titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slabs with mechanically turned (machined) surface. In certificate for such titanium ingot / titanium ingots or slabs we make a mark about ultrasonic control. In case customers demand is titanium ingot or titanium slab is with non-machined condition it is supplied without ultrasonic testing.

Finished production titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slabs are forwarded to the stock where all titanium materials are stored. In certificate for titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots and titanium slab and titanium ingot the following information is indicated:

a)      Casting number of titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium ingot, titanium slab, titanium slabs

b)      GOST, OST and TU according to which the titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and titanium slabs are made

c)      Length of titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and titanium slab /titanium slabs

d)      Weight of titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and titanium slab /titanium slabs

e)      Chemical composition of titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and titanium slab /titanium slabs

f)        Gas composition of titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and titanium slab /titanium slabs

g)      Sizes of titanium slabs, titanium ingot / titanium ingots, titanium slab and titanium slab /titanium slabs: width, thickness, weight
