Rhenium is a dense, malleable and ductile metal. With a melting point of 3,180℃, one of the highest melting points of all metals, it makes it a perfect material to use in high-temperature environments. Rhenium has an unusual property that allows it to be heated and recycled many times, this allows Owens to make sure the component is perfect or else the whole process will be restarted. Some components Owens has made for the aerospace industry include:
We confidently provide advanced CNC machining services, such as complex simultaneous 5-axis milling, for materials like Rhenium. Rhenium is one of the densest materials we have, making it difficult to machine. Owen's team of CNC machinists however have the necessary experience to work with and create components from this material. We know how to cut Rhenium with precision so that your exact machining specifications are met with the highest result.
