Norsk Titanium & Mecachrome Establish 21st Century Additive Manufacturing Supply Chain Solutions

Jaa

Norsk Titanium AS, a world leader in additive manufactured titanium components, announced today that they have established an industrial scale supply chain capable of delivering high quality low-cost additive manufactured aerospace structural components.

As part of a Long Term Agreement (LTA) signed last year with Mecachrome, the two companies have collaborated to develop the industrial processes needed to manufacture aerospace grade titanium components while leveraging the cost benefits of Norsk Titanium’s Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) additive material.

“Mecachrome is extremely proud and excited to collaborate with Norsk Titanium, and be part of that journey towards the shift to production of a disruptive innovation, leading to shorter cycle times and competitive costs,” said Mecachrome CEO Arnaud de Ponnat.

“Mecachrome’s cutting-edge manufacturing processes have allowed for the low-cost production of FAA certified additive manufactured components,” said Norsk Titanium SVP of Operations Christopher Bohlmann. “Their capability has allowed for greatly improved buy-to-fly ratios with a one hundred percent machining yield on the first production lot. Mecachrome’s ability to achieve 100% yield with the extremely small machining margins of RPD™ is a testament to their capability.”

The two companies continue to collaborate on cost improvement initiatives and are currently bidding on production orders from multiple aerospace customers, both in Europe and North America.
