Titanium Welded Assemblies

TiFab has been a trusted partner with the U.S. Navy shipbuilding contractors for over 30 years. Our technical team has worked hand in hand from R&D stage getting new titanium alloys qualified, through WPS and PQR development of all grades of titanium and nickel alloys, all the way through to NDE and testing procedure qualification.

We employ a combination of manual and automatic TIG and Plasma processes that are specifically tailored to the needs of each project. Titanium Fabrication has welded assemblies on every U.S. nuclear submarine and air craft carrier built in the last 20 years.

Titanium Fabrication has approved Fabrication Plans per MIL-STD-278, and can weld to the highest standards for U.S. Navy Shipboard Applications. We have NAVSEA approval for welding all grades of titanium, up to six inches thick, per NAVSEA Technical Publication S9074-AR-GIB 010-278.

We are proud to be the first DOD approved fabricator of Titanium Grade 32 (5-1-1-1) components, a material which we keep in inventory.

TiFab also has all the corresponding NDE procedures approved, and security measures in effect per the latest DOD restrictions.
