$2.2 million Titomic machine installed at UK R&D organisation


Cold spray additive manufacturing business Titomic has announced the completed installation of one of their machines at the TWI research institute near Cambridge, England, where it will play “a key role” in the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) program.

The machine, a TKF1000 additive manufacturing system, would be used to create industrial-scale parts and complex surface coatings for TWI’s aerospace project.

Titomic Managing Director Herbert Koeck said the link with the globally-recognised R&D TWI furthered his company’s standing in the aerospace industry.

“The UK government is awarding grants to technology that helps improve its aerospace manufacturing, so the capabilities of the TKF1000 have been validated through it being a part of the ATI programme, said Koeck.

Dr Henry Begg, Section Manager of TWI, commented said the machine complemented existing investments in laser, arc and electron beam additive manufacturing.

“Having been active in cold spray research for the past 15 years, we will now be able to perform larger and more complex fabrications and, working closely with Titomic and our wide industrial membership base, develop the potentially revolutionary opportunities this technology brings,” said Begg.

Titomic said on Wednesday that the sale – announced in August last year – was worth $2.2 million, which would be reflected in FY2022 figures.
