Success by Experience


VSMPO TiRus GmbH was established in April 1999 in Frankfurt / Main as German affiliate of the largest, truly vertically integrated international titanium producer, PSC VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation.

VSMPO TiRus GmbH is VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation’s sales and distribution centre for European and several worldwide customers. We provide sales, distribution, technical consultation and service centre processing of titanium mill products from single source VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation. We support both long term contracts as well as spot market customers with a wide range of titanium products, Ti6Al4V as well as other alloys for a variety of applications in aerospace, medical, automotive and other industrial engineering markets.

In our 16 000 m² warehouses, we stock ingots, tubes, forgings and mill products (electrodes, ingots, billets, bars, plates, sheets, tubes and forging) in different sizes and shapes. Our services are adaptable to any supply chain demand.

Over the last few years, we largely invested in our machining equipment which allow us to cut different shapes and to perform turning operations. In 2016, we cut more than 220.000 parts with a total weight of 620 metric tonnes.

Our products


Titanium



Lightweight silvery-white metal, titanium is found in nature as a compound within many minerals, but most notably in ilmenite (FeTiO3) and rutile (TiO2), more commonly found in sand or soil than hard rock. Other titanium-bearing minerals include perovskite, titanite, anatase and brookite. Titanium is believed to be earth's crust's 9th most common element (about 0,6%). Major deposits of titanium minerals are found in Australia, Canada, India, Norway, South Africa, the Ukraine and the USA.

The aerospace industry is one of the largest consumer of Titanium, which is recognized for its positive properties:

  • Titanium has a low density combined with high strength and excellent corrosion resistance.
  • Titanium is as strong as steel, but 45% lighter.
  • Titanium is 30% more elastic than steel, its modulus of elasticity making it durable and shock resistant.
  • Titanium is resistant to salt water, perspiration and acids.
  • Titanium has a "low magnetic signature" reducing visibility to metal detectors.
  • Titanium has an extremely high melting point of 1800 degrees Celsius.

Rough scheme of production at our mill VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation

Titanium-Ingots



VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation produces ingots from (commercially pure) titanium and a number of Titanium alloys for industrial, medical and aerospace applications to various international or customer specifications. Ingots are most commonly produced by double or triple VAR (vacuum arc remelting) of compacted electrodes. Moreover, VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation holds approvals to manufacture ingot via skull furnace technology.

As a rule, VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation performs 100% visual inspection of all raw materials. The elaboration of the ingot is followed by machining and ultrasonic testing.

For any queries regarding stock material at VSMPO TiRus GmbH in Frankfurt or regarding new production at our mill in Russia, please contact one of our VSMPO TiRus GmbH sales representatives.

Titanium Sheets and Plates



VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation is equipped with up to date hot-rolling, warm-rolling and cold rolling installations and adjacent cutting equipment including water-jet cutting, descaling equipment, grinding units and sheet wet-polishing units. Hence, our mill is able to produce a wide range of flat-rolled product in various types of alloys in accordance with the requirements of international and customers specifications: hot-rolled plate and sheet, cold-rolled sheet, coil, band, strip and foil.

Dimension of plates ranges in : thickness from 4,76 mm to 160 mm, in width from 500 mm to 1500 mm, in length from 1500 mm to 6500 mm.

Dimension of sheets ranges in : thickness from 0,6 mm to 4,75 mm, width from 500 mm to 1524 mm, length from 1500 mm to 5000 mm.

VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation has extensive heat-treatment capability including creep annealing, extensive surface treatment solutions combined with modern ultrasonic inspection equipment.

Sheets are manufactured either by pack-rolling or by using the sheet-by-sheet rolling method.

Pack-rolling is done in a special bay for assembly and welding of packs equipped with a number of grinding units.

Appropriate pickling equipment is used to remove the gas-saturated layer from the surface. VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation has mastered and received approval for sheet production process for subsequent super-plastic forming (SPF) for aircraft structures. SPF sheets have been certified by Airbus Germany, Rolls Royce, Airbus France, Boeing and Airbus Defense and Space (Spain).

Titanium Bars



VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation supplies bars for the aerospace, chemical, oil, medical, automotive, and other industrial sectors. Its production capabilities and developed processes are based on a combination of radial-screw and longitudinal rolling techniques which allow to produce rolled bars from CP titanium and titanium alloys per individual customer requirements and international specifications.

Rolled bar diameters range from 7 to 114,3 mm with possible lengths up to 3000 mm (for diameter 7-14mm) and up to 6000 mm (for diameter 15-114,3mm).

Software based production planning and simulation as well as statistical process control techniques allow to continually produce high-quality bars with uniform structure, high mechanical properties and precise geometry.

After rolling operations, the bars are subject to further processing including hot straightening on a two-roll straightening machine, machining on centerless lathes and grinders ensuring high precision and surface quality. Modern ultrasonic inspection and technical know-how guarantee an inspection against the strictest international requirements – e.g. AMS 2631, P3TF34, DMC 0022, RPS 707, SIM 11, AMS-STD-2154, and EMS 52321. VSMPO TiRus GmbH has itself approved several subcontractors for centerless grinding and straightening of titanium bars for the medical market.

This beneficial geographic situation supports our main target to deliver high quality parts to your production site - or any other requested destination - on short notice or at fixed dates.

Processing of Titanium Products, Marking and Measuring

We are specialized in cutting titanium flat mill products (plates and sheets) according to our customers' needs - in particular for the aerospace sector. Furthermore, we are able to turn and chamfer round mill products (bars and billets) in house.


Our band saws cut round and flat mill products with a standard tolerance range of -1 mm to +2 mm.


As for waterjet cut parts, our production team will find an optimized solution for you with regard to quality and price. We are striving to minimize production costs by aiming at optimized nesting of the requested cut parts in the input plate in order to keep the scrap rate at minimum.


Our production and capacity planning is software based. We are striving to produce the requested parts with the shortest leadtime and a minimum of scrap of this precious raw material.


Final measuring of geometric parameters is done according to international quality standards using caliper gauges, a 3D-measuring device Römer-Hexagon (for waterjet cut shapes) as well as feeler gauges and a calibrated marble measuring table (to measure flatness and straightness).


Final marking is performed in house according to your requirements with software based ink marking (see picture left) or hard stamping devices.


We are shipping the processed parts in returnable wooden boxes to facilitate handling for our customers and ourselves. Besides cost saving, the ecologic aspect plays particularly an important role in this decision.
