Proof that Fort Wayne Metals did get the contract with MHTX. They are the company that completed an exclusive license deal and transfer of specialty machines, (ECAP-C), to a large American metals manufacturer who provides specialty metals to the U.S. and global medical industry. I found this engineer for Fort Wayne Metals will be presenting his findings this coming Monday at the "Titanium USA 2019 Convention" down in Mobile, Alabama.

Ultra-fine Grain Titanium and Titanium Alloys Produced Via ECAP-C Technology
Ultra-fine grain (UFG) materials manufactured through severe plastic deformation (SPD) techniques have shown promise in titanium, on a small scale, since the early 1990s. While there have been demonstrated increases in mechanical properties in the laboratory, translating to commercial scale production is a barrier which must be overcome. Fort Wayne Metals seeks to overcome this barrier through focused investment in Equal Channel Angular Pressing â€“ Conform (ECAP-C) technology. Starting with CP Ti Gr. 4 and expanding into other titanium alloys, commercial production of UFG material to serve dental, medical, and other industries will soon be a reality. While there have been challenges and hurdles in producing UFG material through the ECAP-C process, Fort Wayne Metals has developed innovative partnerships and employed industrial resources to meet these challenges. In so doing, we have made advances in material processing techniques, post ECAP-C processing and processing aids used to manufacture the material in a consistent manner. While the unique properties of UFG titanium will be beneficial for many applications, they are especially well-suited to the medical and dental industry, specifically for CP Ti Gr. 4 material. The biocompatibility of UFG CP Ti Gr. 4 appears, through initial testing, to be greater than standard coarse grain CP Ti Gr. 4, potentially leading to a reduced healing time after implantation. Healing can further be quickened by smaller devices made possible by high strength material. Add to this increased fatigue life and you have a conglomeration of desirable properties for new medical devices that can save lives and be used in applications previously thought impossible. Putting the most advanced material possible in the hands of our customers and enabling them to save lives drives innovation every day at Fort Wayne Metals. UFG products are a result of that continued commitment.
