Metal 3D printing company Titomic (ASX: TTT) has joined forces with Queensland’s Gilmour Space Technologies to develop high-performance rocket and aerospace components.
Titomic, which is commercialising its Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) manufacturing process, will co-operate with rocket developer Gilmour ‘across multiple exciting fields within the global space industry’.
The areas of cooperation are:
• Performing R&D works to fabricate and produce rocket components using Titomic’s TKF systems
• Explore, design and develop a digital manufacturing process to deliver high performance rocket components
• And the production of rocket and space components to benefit Australia’s future space exploration activities.
James Gilmour said the partnership would develop lighter and stronger components for our orbital launch vehicles.
Titomic managing director, Jeff Lang said: “This is an exciting new development for Titomic to share a commercially strategic vison to deliver unique capabilities of advanced technologies to assure growth of the Australian space eco-system.
“The Gilmour Space strategy, for lower cost access to launch satellites into space by affordable high-performance rockets, is in synergy with Titomic’s capability to provide an affordable alternative to traditional manufacturing.”
