MANUFACTURING

Our Beta Titanium 153 material is only 0.6 mm thick. It’s a complex material to work with due to its strength and high flexibility. Manufacturing Paper Thin Titanium requires a great deal of laser technology as well as high precision bending equipment to turn a two-dimensional laser-cut shape into a paper-thin titanium frame. The TR 90 Ultra 2.1 mm thick material, used for the eye-wire rims, is first injected into a sheet and then cut with precision drills to carve a perfect groove.
