What is TC4 Titanium Alloy Material
The latest forecast from consulting firm AlixPartners is that the chip shortage may cost the global auto industry $110 billion; it will reduce global auto production by 3.9 million this year. For the global chip shortage, AlixPartners analyzed that the main reason is that the chip production cycle is too long; at the same time, other uncontrollable risks from the industry chain have also affected the production rhythm. As the chip supply shortage continues to intensify, some automakers' factories have been forced to stop production for several days Even weeks, which companies such as Ford, GM, Stellantis, and others have been hit particularly hard. Even BMW, which was previously less affected, is beginning to show difficulties, with its Oxford plant in the UK shutting down for three days from April 30 and its Regensburg plant in Germany starting to reduce production shifts this week.
Chip supply shortages drive Ti6Al4V powder.
What is TC4?
The composition of titanium alloy TC4 material is Ti-6Al-4V, which belongs to
(α+β) type titanium alloy and has good comprehensive mechanical and mechanical
properties. than the strength. The strength sb=1.012GPa of TC4, the density
g=4.51g/cm3, the specific strength sb/g=23.5, while the specific strength sb/g
of alloy steel is less than 18. Titanium alloys have low thermal conductivity.
The thermal conductivity of titanium alloy is 1/5 of iron and 1/10 of aluminum,
and the thermal conductivity of TC4 is l=7.955W/m·K.
Properties and uses of TC4 titanium alloy
Titanium alloys have properties such as low quality and high strength, good
high temperature strength and good corrosion resistance, and have been widely
used in emerging fields such as aerospace, navigation, automobiles, medical
equipment, and sports equipment. As a medium-strength α-β titanium alloy, TC4 is
mainly used in the manufacture of aircraft fuselage, wing parts and engine
blades, and is currently the most widely used titanium alloy. TC4 alloy has high
strength, good thermal stability, excellent corrosion resistance and good

Gas supplies have been in short supply because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Combined with the situation that other renewable sources cannot produce enough electricity, electricity prices have soared in many parts all over the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the Ti6Al4V powder would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
