Australian metal additive manufacturing company, Titomic Limited has unveiled the world’s largest and fastest metal 3D printer at its new state-of-the-art facility in Melbourne.
Co-developed with CSIRO, Titomic’s industrial scale 3D metal printer overcomes size and speed constrains present in all other 3D metal printers on the market.
The company’s Chairman Philp Vafiadis said Titomic’s technology is capable of making large complex parts such as airplane wings and various submarine components in minutes and with zero waste, using only the required amount of metal powder needed to minimise environment impact and cost.
He said the technology is also capable of fusing dissimilar materials, allowing for metal products to be manufactured without melting.
“We are proud to officially launch Titomic’s first large-scale metal 3D printer,” he stated.
“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 constrained them.”
Titomic’s CEO and CTO, Jeff Lang said the company’s proprietary Titomic Kinetic Fusion process allows the new age of manufacturing to be highly scalable, agile and sustainable.
“As a Company, we look forward to realising the potential of advanced manufacturing at industrial scale, both nationally and globally,” he added.
“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 are proud to be 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.”
