Metal additive manufacturing company Titomic has made the first sale into the Asia Pacific region of its recently acquired product line, the D523 System.
The system was sold to D&C Coating in Singapore, a surface engineering repair service servicing the oil and gas sector.
The system is portable and can rapidly deposit metals to restore damaged and corroded parts, applying metal coatings and simplifying preventative and general maintenance.
In December Titomic bought the system along with a cold spray technology company with products complementary to its own 3D printers.
Titomic paid $2.1 million to acquire Dycomet Europe BV, which provides low, medium and high pressure cold spray services, complementing Titomic manufactured 3D printers utilising its proprietary Titomic Kinetic Fusion additive technologies.
Titomic managing director Herbert Koeck said the Titomic Australia team had rapidly adopted this new technology and is finding numerous applications and opportunities within Australia and the region.
“Globally the cost to remediate the effects of corrosion costs $276 billion annually, spanning oil & gas, mining, infrastructure and transportation, and defence.
“As such the repairs and coatings markets remain a strong focus for Titomic’s commercial expansion.”
