About

We here at Empire Tactical USA want to create the lightest, Hardest, most durable gaming dice the world has ever seen. Industry utilizes titanium in jet engines and The hatch on the M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle is titanium offering a weight savings of 35% and also providing increased ballistic protection over the original forged aluminum design.

We wanted to make combat ready dice!

A metallic element, titanium is recognized for its high strength-to-weight ratio. Titanium is 60% denser than aluminium, but more than twice as strong

Titanium is a chemical element with symbol Ti and atomic number 22. It is a lustrous transition metal with a silver color, low density and high strength. It is highly resistant to corrosion in sea water, aqua regia and chlorine.

Titanium has become dramatically more significant as a workpiece material in machine shops. Two industries are driving this. One is aerospace. The latest aircraft designs use dramatically more titanium than planes of the past. The other is the medical industry. Titanium is a common material used for implants and devices used within the body. Titanium’s high hardness and low thermal conductivity make it more challenging to machine than other metals that most machine shops are more accustomed to facing.

Why is milling titanium worth the attention? There are at least two reasons. First, the material is used for high-end parts—not just components used in an aircraft’s frame and engine, but also medical parts, for example. Shops able to thrive in the United States increasingly will migrate toward higher-end work, meaning that a growing percentage of U.S. shops will encounter this material.

That’s one reason. Another, broader reason for covering titanium milling relates to the procedures for machining effectively when the material is difficult to cut or the available speed is low. Not every shop has access to high spindle speeds and feed rates

This project will help propel us into many other titanium projects in the future! 

WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE!

Risks and challenges

I find there will be few risks as I have access to 3 different machine shops all willing to take on this adventure.

I have been manufacturing and selling online for over 10 years and have MANY connections.
