Norsk Titanium, New York, USA, an FAA-approved supplier of aerospace-grade additively manufactured structural titanium components, announced during the Farnborough International Airshow, UK, July 16-22, 2018, that its Plattsburgh Development and Qualification Center (PDQC) site, Plattsburgh, New York, USA, has been officially added to Spirit AeroSystems’ Approved Suppliers List.

Spirit AeroSystems is one of the world’s largest independent aerostructures manufacturers and the announcement comes in anticipation of the start of qualified production later this year. Norsk’s PDQC was added to Boeing’s Qualified Producer’s List (QPL) list in June and is AS9100D certified. The company believes the new qualification by Spirit is key to furthering the availability of its Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) technology in the aerospace market.

Tamara Morytko, Norsk’s Chief Operating Officer, stated, “These significant achievements have been made possible by the foresight and commitment made to Norsk by the State of New York and Empire State Development. We are extremely proud of our PDQC quality and operations teams and appreciate the continued confidence our customers have demonstrated in Norsk by granting these qualifications.”

The PDQC currently houses nine of Norsk’s RPD titanium Additive Manufacturing machines. The RPD process uses titanium wire with plasma torches to additively manufacture titanium structural components. The systems can be used to produce large structural parts weighing over 45 kg (100 lbs) and is said to be 50-100 times faster than powder-based systems, using 25-50% less titanium than forging processes. This technology is applicable to aviation, space, transportation, oil & gas and maritime.
