A new class of materials, known as ultrafine grained (UFG) metals, has better biocompatibility, higher strength and enhanced formability at elevated temperatures. A new technique of creating UFG metals by severe plastic deformation is being adopted by a specialist metals producer. UFG metals are considered for advanced applications in the medical and aerospace sectors. UFG metals show superior quality in manufacturing of micro-components; for the first time, micro-EDM, micromilling, microforming and diamond turning of mirror surfaces have been shown to benefit from the UFG structure of the material by achieving an improved surface finish.
