What is Kinetic Fusion
Titomic's Kinetic Fusion (TKF) process is a unique, patented additive manufacturing process for the application of titanium and titanium alloy powders onto a scaffold surface to rapidly produce titanium or titanium/composite products and parts to a scale and quality not possible via any other additive manufactuing process.
Co-developed with the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) the Australian federal government agency for scientific research, the TKF process is an automated robotic process and effectively creates (by spraying onto a scaffold) complex objects in 3D. As compared with classic titanium 3D printers, this new form of additive manufacturing is approximately 50 times faster, more than 50% cheaper and approximately 50% stronger. Not only is it faster, cheaper & stronger than 3D printing but in most cases it is also faster, Cheaper and Stronger than traditional forged and welded products. Case Study.
How it works
Minimal thermal alteration or oxidization of the material due to heat
Fine, compressed layers indistinguishable from each other
Electrical conductivity is 2-4 times of the conductivity of other spraying techniques
Activated metals include Titanium, gold, silver, aluminum, aluminum bronze, copper, monel, nickel chrome, nickel, stainless steel, tin, zinc, cermet, brazing material, and solder
- Can be use in/on a wide array of materials, including metals, non-ferrous metals, ceramic, glass, stone and plastic.
