Australian metal additive manufacturing company, Titomic Limited announced the launch of one of the world’s largest and fastest metal 3D metal printers (9 m long x 3 m wide x 1.5 m high) at its state of the art facility in Melbourne, Australia.
Titomic’s industrial scale 3D metal printer, with a patented additive manufacturing process co-developed with CSIRO, overcomes size and speed constraints present in all other 3D metal printers and will transform the future of advanced manufacturing. From airplane wings to submarines, Titomic’s technology is capable of making large complex parts in minutes and fusing dissimilar materials and enables metal products to be manufactured without melting.
Titomic’s Chairman, Philip Vafiadis commented:
“We’re proud to officially launch Titomic’s first large-scale metal 3D printer. The industry leaders we have met, understand that Titomic brings more than merely an advancement of 3D printing. Using Titomic’s technology, traditional industry manufacturers can now transform beyond legacy processes and the economics which have con strained them.”
Titomic’s CEO and CTO, Jeff Lang added:
“As a Company, we look forward to realising the potential of advanced manufacturing at industrial scale, both nationally and globally. The capabilities of Australian ingenuity coupled with Titomic’s unique technology is pioneering the pathways for sustainable global manufacturing that is only limited by imagination.
We’re proud to be an Australian Company who has successfully co-developed with CSIRO a new way of manufacturing which can utilise the abundant Titanium mineral sand resources of Australia. We will challenge the traditional methods as to how products are designed and made for aviation, space, defence, marine, infrastructure, transportation, consumer goods and as well as other key industries around the world.”
Using additive manufacturing technologies such as the proprietary Titomic Kinetic Fusion process allows the new age of manufacturing to be highly scalable, agile and sustainable. Titomic’s process targets zero-waste, using only the required amount of metal powder needed to minimise environment impact and costs.
Titomic this week announced it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Fincantieri, one of the world's largest shipbuilding companies to explore the use of the Titomic Kinetic Fusion technology in the marine sector.
Fincantieri adds to Titomic’s existing customers at the forefront of transformational advanced manufacturing technology across multiple industry sectors including mining, oil and gas, and high-end sporting goods.
