TMC – the ultimate problem solver

KTW Systems – Driven by Innovation – is proud to announce the development of a Titan Matrix Composite, which is able to reduce weight by getting a higher strength and stiffness!

Titanium Matrix Composites (TMC) is a composite made of Ti-Alloy and Si-C fiber. TMC is a problem solver , especially for aerospace and medical tech and replaces a high number of standard components. TMC is very suitable in environments where high forces occur and lightweight components with high strength and stiffness are required.

Our process for the production of reinforced components with Si-C fiber offers the best possible properties and a wide variety in production.

The extraordinary features of TMC convinced the Russian Aircraft industry ( www.viam.ru), and they started to implement TMC .

Compared to high strength steel shows TMC a lot of adavantages:

  • up to 50% weight reduction
  • up to 75% more strength at 600 degrees Celsisus
  • up to 25% higher stiffness
  • much less elongation
