Titomic to 3D-print test parts for Boeing airplanes


Australian metals and manufacturing firm Titomic has inked an agreement with Boeing to deliver additively manufactured test parts for airplanes.

The initial contract, valued at $170,000, will see Titomic deliver additive manufactured parts for Boeing validation using its patented Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) technology that provides significant reduction in part production lead-times.

Commenting on the announcement, Titomic Managing Director Jeff Lang said:
“Titomic is pleased to announce this trial agreement with Boeing to deliver additively manufacturing test parts for airplanes,” Mr Lang stated.

“Currently, with traditional manufacturing process, there is up to an 80% material waste and 6-month lead time to CNC machine these parts.

“These Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) produced parts will allow Boeing a significant reduction in lead-times, improved performance for composite part production and cycle times.”
