Two leading Australian manufacturers with complementary technologies and client lists have entered into a manufacturing partnership – metal additive manufacturing company Titomic and diverse, vertically integrated company Stärke Advanced Manufacturing Group.
Titomic is a leader in producing cold spray metal 3D printers, while Adelaide’s Stärke is involved with tooling production locally and in the United States, the automotive sector and increasingly defence industry, as well as metal fabrication.
