AmeriTi Parts Receives Order to Produce Titanium Main Bearing Caps via Press and Sinter for a Mass Produced Engine

August 21, 2014

AmeriTi Parts has been awarded a purchase order to produce main bearing caps as a prototype for an engine currently in mass production.  The project will compare the properties of titanium against other lightweight alternatives to PM steel.  Titanium offers the opportunity to reduce engine weight by as much as 5 pounds in the main bearing caps without sacrificing strength.  AmeriTi was selected because of its competitive advantage as a low cost titanium powder producer combined with its press and sinter capability.  Tensile, modulus, and fatigue properties will be available for publication at the conclusion of this project.
