Titomic, Melbourne, Australia, has entered into an agreement with FLSmidth, Copenhagen, Denmark, a developer of sustainable productivity equipment for the mining industry, for a production trial which will see Titomic utilise its proprietary Titomic Kinetic Fusion™ (TKF) metal Additive Manufacturing process to build high-wear resistant parts.

The aim of this trial is to validate improvements for high-wear resistant mining equipment using TKF. Titomic’s AM process for the metallurgical fusion of dissimilar metals is expected to enable it to introduce higher performing materials to the mining industry, which are pivotal to minimising downtime and significantly improving productivity.

As a leading supplier of engineering, equipment and service solutions, FLSmidth delivers sustainable productivity to the global mining and cement industries which reportedly improves performance, drives down costs and reduces the environmental impact of operations. On the successful completion of test trials, Titomic will negotiate a contract to supply OEM production of high-wear resistant parts to FLSmidth from its TKF Melbourne Bureau for the global mining industry.

Jeff Lang, Titomic Managing Director, commented, “Titomic is proud to partner with FLSmidth, the global leader in sustainable productivity to the mining industry to deliver TKF additive manufactured parts with real economic value to mining operations. The mining industries’ equipment breakdowns are timely and expensive setbacks for operations and Titomic is well positioned, as the global leader in industrial scale metal Additive Manufacturing, to partner with FLSmidth to provide next-generation technologies for improved commercial benefits of their customers.”
