Titomic & Néos to manufacture metal 3D printed Invar36 Faceplates through new joint venture

Metal 3D Printer Manufacturer Titomic Limited has formed a joint venture with NÉOS International Limited to manufacture and sell Invar 36 Faceplates and multi-metal product solutions.

Formerly know as Hockley Pattern & Tool, Neos International is an engineering group that provides a combination of metallic prototype parts, metallic low volume production parts, specialist tooling for composite component manufacture, gauges and fixtures for parts production.

Based in the UK, the new company will deliver products to the Aerospace, Defence, Automotive and Nuclear industries. The products will be manufactured using Titomic’s Kinetic Fusion Technology and Neos’ existing specialist engineering and tooling expertise.

We might therefore expect a high-rate production of mould tools and nickel tools which will serve for the manufacture of carbon fibre composites and Defence solutions across the UK supply chain; the ultimate goal being to provide support for the UK’s position on next-generation aircraft.

For Titomic, this new joint venture is the first step that marks the implementation of a strategy that aims to become an international provider of solutions by collaborating with its clients through joint ventures.

This new company created with Neos is the result of Titomic’s supply agreement announced on October 22nd, 2020.

Norbert Schulze, Interim CEO of Titomic, commented: “We are excited about working with Neos to manufacture high-performance solutions in the United Kingdom using our Kinetic Fusion Technology, providing reduced lead times to the Aerospace sectors by combining Neos’ well-established engineering expertise and Titomic’s high-speed additive manufacturing technology.

Both partners share the same vision for the rapid delivery of Invar and Nickel Shell Tooling and related products to the Aerospace and other key sectors. To this end, they aim at assisting with the acceleration of next-generation advanced carbon fibre composite technologies, which are critical for the production of lightweight fuel-efficient aircraft and to support the UK’s nascent Space Industry.

 Carl Roberts, CEO of Neos “Titomic is a leading company with proven reliability in metal additive manufacturing so, having them as our joint venture partner, will be extremely beneficial in producing large scale additively manufactured solutions for the Aerospace Industry, as well as a beneficial technology to support the changing Defence landscape.”
