Australian metal AM company Titomic has signed an agreement with aerospace giant Airbus through which its Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) technology will be used to demonstrate high-performance metal parts for the European aircraft manufacturer.
By developing TKF AM parts process parameters and material properties for Airbus, Titomic is taking a significant step in the validation of its AM process for aerospace applications.
“We are pleased to partner with Airbus for this initial aerospace part made with Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF), the world’s largest and fastest industrial-scale metal additive manufacturing process,” said Titomic CEO Jeff Lang. “The TKF process [is] ideally suited to produce near-net shape metal parts for the aerospace industry using our patented process of fusing dissimilar metals that cannot be produced with either traditional fabrication methods or metal-based 3D printers.” Airbus is a keen adopter of additive manufacturing technology: the aircraft manufacturer installed its first 3D printer […]
