American Titanium to build new facility
American Titanium Works LLC (ATW), headquartered in
Chicago, Illinois, announced its intent to build a new integrated titanium
Under one roof, manufacturing activities will include a solids and machine
turnings scrap processing operation, raw material preparation and blending
equipment, plasma arc melting (PAM) and vacuum arc melting (VAR) furnaces
and a four-high rolling mill designed and purpose built for rolling of
alloyed and commercially pure titanium plate. A wide range of titanium
conditioning and finishing equipment will be on-site to ensure quality
and reduce lead times.
The facility will incorporate proprietary technologies and innovations
enabling ATW to convert a wide variety of inputs into alloyed and commercially
pure ingots, rounds and slabs of various sizes.
At full capacity, the facility expects to employ more than 250 people,
with the potential for further facility expansion.
