Norsk Titanium marks entry into industrial manufacturing with Hittech order

October 14, 2022

Norsk Titanium AS, Hønefoss, Norway, has marked its expansion into the industrial manufacturing market with the serial production of an additively manufactured 80 kg Ti6Al4V component. This recurring production purchase order comes from Norsk Titanium partner Hittech Group, based in Den Haag, the Netherlands.

Development of the component was completed earlier this year in accordance with industrial material specifications. Production of the components commenced at the Norsk Titanium’s development centre in Hønefoss before moving to its Plattsburgh Production Center in New York, USA.

With its proprietary Rapid Plasma Deposition® (RPD®) technology and 700 MT of production capacity, Norsk Titanium offers Additive Manufacturing value-added metal parts to a large addressable market. Parts additively manufactured with RPD are already used on commercial aircraft and the company is said to have gained significant traction with many defence and industrial customers.

“RPD is uniquely suited for this application,” stated Nicholas Mayer, VP Commercial, Norsk Titanium. “The high deposition and near-net shape part that our process delivers allows our customer to reduce their raw material costs and improve their productivity. This effectively increases their capacity without any capital investment.”

“This is an important milestone for Norsk Titanium,” Mayer continued. “Entry into the industrial market is key to our long-term growth. This production milestone is one of our primary goals for this year, along with expansion of our commercial aerospace customer base and penetration of the US defence market.”
