MTI Metal Technology
Metal Technology (MTI) has developed a reputation for reliability and quality over the past 44 years because of its innovative approach to precision forming processes using reactive and refractory alloys. “We have always focused on high-temperature, corrosion-resistant alloys that are produced here in Albany, Ore.,” Director of Sales Steve Smith says. “Niobium, titanium and zirconium are some of the alloys used heavily in propulsion systems for rocket and aerospace applications.”
Albany has a rich heritage of metallurgy dating back to the early 1940s when President Franklin D. Roosevelt tapped the Albany branch of the U.S. Bureau of Mines to develop a process to produce these metals, Smith says.
