The aeronautics industry, in parallel with the increase in production rates, is constantly seeking to increase part quality and reduce costs, particularly through the introduction of innovative processes. This is the case for titanium alloys used for structural parts whose shaping is based on high temperature forming processes. These new processes are also of interest to the naval sector by offering it the opportunity to produce complex, more efficient parts.


The project concerns the development of innovative hot forming processes using titanium alloys to create complex parts for the aerospace and naval industries. It focuses in particular on the development of a mixed HF/SPF process and the associated tooling.
