  • Supply of AP&C aerospace grade Titanium Ti6Al4v Metal Powder for Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) systems.
  • Titomic and AP&C sign Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to co-develop fields for future cooperation for Titanium powders for use in TKF manufacturing systems.

Melbourne, Australia 2nd September, 2019: Titomic Limited (ASX: TTT) (“Titomic” or “Company”) Australian digital manufacturing solutions company is pleased to announce a Titanium Ti6Al4V powder supply agreement with AP&C - a GE Additive company, for Titomic Kinetic Fusion™ additive manufacturing process. Together with the Supply Agreement, Titomic and AP&C signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which will see the parties work together to develop Titanium and Titanium alloy powders for use in the Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) additive manufacturing systems for various manufacturing industries globally.

For more than 10 years, experienced users of Additive Manufacturing and Coating technologies have trusted powders from AP&C to build high-quality components for the aerospace, defence, biomedical, and industrial markets. The agreement will provide secure global supply of aerospace grade Titanium Ti6Al4V powders to Titomic for its TKF systems providing the highest quality powder for Titomic’s clients in the defence and aerospace Industries.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) purpose will be the cooperation in the field of developing Titanium and Titanium alloy powders for use within Titomic TKF AM manufacturing systems in various manufacturing industries globally. In order to execute the present MoU, the following fields for future mutual cooperation are:

  • Titomic and AP&C to co-develop industry standards of best practice for the storage and safe handling of Titanium and Titanium alloy powders;
  • Titomic and AP&C to develop custom-made homogenization powder systems for Titanium and Titanium alloy powders for use in TKF AM manufacturing systems;
  • Titomic and AP&C to explore the optimization of coarse (50um - 150um) Titanium and Titanium Alloy powders for use in TKF AM manufacturing systems with the aim of significantly reducing the cost of TKF manufactured products.

 

Titomic Managing Director Mr. Jeff Lang, said: “AP&C, a GE Additive Company, is a global leader in the production of the aerospace grade Titanium and Titanium alloy powders, using its Plasma Atomisation Manufacturing process, which have the ideal characteristics for Titomic Kinetic Fusion process.
