Titomic is an Australian Industrial-Scale metal 3D printing firm and it is happy to declare that it has struck deal with US-located Ascent Aerospace, Ascent. This is especially for the performance of business possibilities to provide the unique capability of Titomic’s Kinetic Fusion for Ascent’s linked aerospace client base.
Ascent is the best provider of aerospace tooling mechanisms, assembly automation and plant combination for defense, space, and aerospace sectors internationally. Ascent contracts over 900 sector experts, around 11 areas internationally, providing a wide range of items and solutions to handle difficult aerostructure collection needs. This is from wing pieces and fuselage constructions to end assembly sets. As the sector’s biggest automation and tooling firm, Ascent makes a complete line of mixed tooling, mandrels, layup molds, bond tools, and clip and drill accessories. This includes the biggest Invar designs ever created for aerospace.
Also, Ascent provides automated, high-precision fastening and drilling mechanisms, having set over 2,200 mechanisms internationally.
As a collection series integrator, Ascent serves with airframers to create their plan and view it through from procedure design and architecture to build and fitting, to guarantee it is an effective and affordable solution. The approach has enabled Ascent Aerospace to create lasting, diplomatic agreements with the foremost producers of the world. This is in the business aerospace, defense, business aviation, space ship, and satellite businesses.
The collaboration will comprise of two stages:
Stage 1 – Validation Phase
This is where Titomic will give an Ascent customer approved Invar36 device, produced by the use of the TKF9000 metal 3D printing system, and to carry out an experiment and manufacturing feasibility analysis.
The second phase is the Adoption Phase. The aim is to create a join-sales strategy for the supply of aerospace tooling. This is by the use of TKF’s 3D printing procedure so as to lessen to present long lead-times needed to attain the rising international need.
Titomic has carried out comprehensive analysis and evolution of metal machining for the defense and aerospace sectors. It has currently attained an articulation point to offer the sector with a fresh machining alternative by the use of TKF industrial scale metal 3D printing, enhancing tool execution, piece manufacture and lessened lead duration.
This collaboration will form on the present development projects of Titomic so as to make to metal machining with lessened porosity with enhancing tool wear-proof and offer a more maintainable green manufacturing procedure by lessening material waste.
“The significant increase in the global tooling market is being driven by the aerospace and defence industries’ compounding need for higher production rates of carbon fiber parts. The increased use of carbon fiber parts in commercial aircraft has created a backlog in the supply of tooling that is not being resolved. Titomic’s partnership with Ascent Aerospace makes strategic sense to further validate the commercial opportunities for industrial-scale metal additive manufacturing using Titomic’s TKF systems to resolve this current, and ongoing, backlog for tooling,” says Titomic Managing Director, Mr. Jeff Lang.
“Our focused research & development activities in additive manufacturing technologies aligns with Ascent’s multi-year technology roadmap and realization of expansive efforts studying the benefits of these technologies within the aerospace tooling market. Staying at the forefront of additive manufacturing positions us to remain the leader in new and innovative tooling solutions, supporting strong collaboration with our customers and supplementing our in-house, vertically integrated design and fabrication capabilities. We look forward to working with Titomic in the advancement of metallic 3D printing for the aerospace tooling industry,” explains the CEO of Ascent Aerospace, Mr. Michael Mahfet.
