Australian digital manufacturing solutions company, Titomic, is pleased to advise of the outstanding test results which have been achieved from the $2.6M co-funded IMCRC, CSIRO & RMIT Research Project, designed to develop Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) certification standards announced to the ASX on 26th October 20181. The research findings show that Titomic’s TKF process to additive manufacture titanium parts using CP Titanium Grade two powder (2) achieved ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of 634Mpa being 83.8% higher than 345Mpa3set by ASTM International, and an increased elongation of up to 27.7% being 38.5% higher than 20%set by ASTM International. This provides evidence that Titomic Kinetic Fusion has the fatigue resistance and strength requirements for aerospace and other industry applications, plus far exceeds the minimum ASTM International standard requirements.

The primary objectives of the 2-year research program is to develop new industry standards for fatigue, crack growth, and fracture toughness of Titanium complex-shaped structures produced using the TKF manufacturing process as further validation for additive manufactured parts for Aerospace. With the current focus by ASTM International world standards on the lack of metal 3D printing industry standards, design principles, as well as qualification and certification challenges for additively manufactured metal parts, Titomic is the transformational leader in commercially viable Titanium additive manufacturing with a secure supply chain of Titanium powders.

Mr. Jeff Lang, Titomic Managing Director, said:
These test results not only provide validation to industry of titanium parts produced using our TKF process, but more importantly the research conducted across multiple Titanium powder supply chains secured by Titomic outlines why we placed so much emphasis on securing feedstock powders with industry leading companies to capture the entire value chain surrounding our technology whilst meeting ASTM International standards.
