After more than 50 years in the world of titanium, RIGHTech Fabrications is an expert in fabricating a material that poses challenges very few shops want to face.
Our welders have learned to manage a ghostly stream of invisible argon gas to make welds that maintain titanium’s strength and ductility (see TIG Welding picture). We know that a dirty weld, fabricated with too much exposure to the atmosphere, adds electrical resistance to our typical joints and robs our customers through their electric meters. We also know that stamping dies last only hours when pushing through our super hard material instead of the days that steel and copper fabricators expect from their stamping dies. And, we have to be fanatics in designing bend radii, choosing our bending tools carefully because a sharp bend that’s an easy choice in aluminum will crack and break when it’s the same shape produced in titanium.
With all that titanium expertise comes a side benefit that RIGHTech customers enjoy. We are also great fabricators and designers of most of the industrial metals that the electroplating industry uses to create effective, functional and gorgeous decorative surfaces. Aluminum for cathodes (see Aluminum Cathode picture) and racks is an easy beginning. Stainless steel in many of its alloys for trays, baskets and racks runs through our shop every day (see316 Stainless picture). We have become experts in clad materials – titanium over aluminum and copper for corrosion resistant bus bars, and platinum and iridium clads for auxiliary anodes. For some of the most difficult corrosive environments, our customers call on us to fabricate heat exchangers in zirconium (inert to hot sulfuric acid), niobium and even tantalum.
So, even though we may be known us as titanium experts, RIGHTech Fabrications’ customers also know they can call on us for all their metal fabrication needs. They know our bag of tricks only starts with titanium and runs from A for aluminum all the way to Z for zirconium.
