UTRS Works to Improve Titanium Manufacturing

Butte, MT, August 1, 2010—Universal Technical Resource Services, Inc. (UTRS) has established a research and development (R&D) center in Butte, Mont., to find new ways to manufacture titanium. Since World War II, there has been only one time-consuming, expensive, and inefficient process to make titanium metal; however, UTRS employees are on the verge of a breakthrough to change that.

Titanium is extremely light and strong, and is used in various industries such as aerospace, medical, and sports equipment. Finding a more cost-efficient way to produce the metal will result in job creation, stronger materials for building, advancement in aerospace technologies and medical technology, lighter automobiles, and better sports equipment.
