Titanium spray to make aerospace repairs quicker and safer

Australia’s biggest manufacturing research centre has signed a $2.6-million deal to finalise the development of a system that will provide faster and safer repairs for military aircraft.

The Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre will work with Titomic, a Melbourne-based metal additive manufacturing company, to create global industry safety standards for the Australian technology.

The process, known as Titomic Kinetic Fusion, sprays titanium or titanium alloy particles onto a scaffold to produce a load-bearing structure. It is faster than conventional 3D metal printing and produces stronger structures.
