Apex is proud to have partnered with Apiar London in the development and manufacturing of their exquisite titanium watches. We produced intricate components with exceptional precision and durability using our advanced Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) technology and proprietary process parameters. These capabilities enabled Apiar London to realise their vision of high-quality, intricately designed titanium watches that are both visually stunning and mechanically sound.
The Ti6Al4V GR23 ELI alloy is a high-purity titanium alloy distinguished by its low levels of interstitial impurities like oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. Its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for automotive and aerospace applications requiring lightweight structures. Enhanced ductility and fracture toughness, as well as strong corrosion resistance and biocompatibility, expand its use to surgical and dental applications.
The 316L alloy is a specialised form of austenitic stainless steel, primarily constituted of iron and alloyed with up to 18% chromium, 14% nickel, and 3% molybdenum, among other trace elements. Distinguished as an extra-low carbon variant of the standard 316 alloy, it offers enhanced resistance to sensitization, which is carbide precipitation at grain boundaries. This feature contributes to the alloy’s commendable weldability, as well as its superior resistance to stress rupture and tensile strength at elevated temperatures.
AlSi10Mg is composed of aluminium, enriched with up to 10% silicon, along with traces of magnesium, iron, and other minor elements. Silicon contributes to the alloy’s enhanced hardness and strength through the formation of Mg2Si precipitates.
