RTI International Metals, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, a manufacturer and distributor of titanium-alloy products, extruded shapes, formed parts and engineered systems, has contracted with Roll Forming Corp. (RFC), Shelbyville, KY, to supply laser-beam welding, forming and inspection of RTI’s structural titanium components destined for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The 10-yr. contract with RFC is estimated to generate more than $120 million in revenue and requires RFC to perform production laser-beam welding for the 787 seat-track program. RTI, along with its supply-chain partners, will machine and assemble the finished titanium components used for the seat tracks, which mount to the floor structure of the 787.
