Titomic Limited, Melbourne, Australia, has reported the results of its $2.6 million co-funded IMCRC, CSIRO & RMIT research project, designed to develop certification standards for Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF).

The research findings reportedly show that Titomic’s TKF process to additively manufacture titanium parts using CP Titanium Grade two powder achieved ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of 634 Mpa being 83.8% higher than 345 Mpa set by ASTM International, and an increased elongation of up to 27.7% being 38.5% higher than 20%. This demonstrates that TKF has the fatigue resistance and strength required for applications aerospace and other critical industries, and exceeds the minimum ASTM International standard requirements.

According to Titomic, the primary objectives of the two-year research programme are to develop new industry standards for fatigue, crack growth, and fracture toughness of complex-shaped titanium structures produced using the TKF manufacturing process as further validation for additively manufactured parts for aerospace.

Jeff Lang, Titomic Managing Director, stated, “These test results not only provide validation to industry of titanium parts produced using our TKF process, but more importantly the research conducted across multiple titanium powder supply chains secured by Titomic outlines why we placed so much emphasis on securing feedstock powders with industry-leading companies to capture the entire value chain surrounding our technology whilst meeting ASTM International standards.”
