Titomic enters US defence market with metal 3D printer sale


Metal additive manufacturing machinery manufacturer Titomic has broken into the US defence market with the sale of a custom Titomic Kinetic Fusion System (TKF System) to US-based venture business Triton Systems.

The $1.2 million system, to be delivered within 9 months, is part of Triton’s larger strategic investment in developing new and innovative manufacturing applications.

The sale also marks Titomic’s first sale of a TKF system in the United States.

Triton’s Chief Operating Officer David Model said: “The acquisition of the Titomic Kinetic Fusion System represents a strategic enhancement to our R&D and manufacturing capabilities, ensuring we stay at the cutting edge of technology.

“This investment strengthens our ability to innovate and underscores our dedication to delivering superior solutions for defence and commercial applications.”

The sale is a major advancement in the partnership established in 2020 between Titomic and Triton, and furthers the incorporation of TKF technology in Triton’s development of applications for the US Department of Defense as well as commercial aerospace, industrial and power generation markets.

The TKF system offers rapid and cost-effective additive manufacturing of large area and high-performance parts from materials such as aluminum, titanium, steels, and nickel-based superalloys, as well as multiple metals, according to Titomic.

The TKF System will provide Triton with novel capabilities surrounding applications including armaments, barrels, electro-magnetic shielding, armour, large-scale structures, propulsion systems, metal restoration, and functional coatings.

The Managing Director of Titomic Herbert Koeck said: “This sale, following Triton’s rigorous testing and subsequent adoption, is a major validation of Titomic’s commercial strategy and technology.

“It highlights the importance of our Kinetic Fusion technology in the United States’ and global defence sectors and sets the stage for further sales, showcasing proven implementation and innovation in defence and commercial manufacturing.”

Other defene organisations including the Koninklijke Landmacht (the Royal Netherlands Army) and BAE Systems utilise Titomic’s TKF Systems.
