Titomic Limited, Brisbane, Australia, has received an order from mining engineering company Brauntell – a Titomic authorised service provider and reseller – for D523 cold spray metal Additive Manufacturing machines valued at AU$395,000. The machines are expected to be sold on to Brauntell mining end users in New South Wales and Queensland. The sale follows a purchase order for a machine to Brauntell announced in early July of this year, establishing repeat business through the reseller channel and providing Titomic with a presence in the mining sector.

“Partnering with Brauntell, a company with deep and extensive expertise within the mining industry, is a solid first step into the mining sector and through the reseller channel,” stated Herbert Koeck, Managing Director of Titomic. “This engagement is further proof that we continue to strongly deliver on our commercial strategy. Resellers provide Titomic with an efficient means of extending our reach into end users. With Brauntell, we’re able to leverage both their expertise and our novel technology to introduce competitive services to the market. Our partnership with Brauntell will be lengthy and fruitful for both parties.”

Brauntell offers specialist sustainment services to the Australian mining industry and the purchase of these D523 machines are expected to further enhance the company’s product offering within MRO services. The mining industry relies on developed maintenance programmes to ensure equipment operability; unforeseen machinery breakdowns can lead to months-long downtimes and accompanying lost revenue due to a reliance on external repair/replacement services.

Titomic’s D523 machines utilise high-velocity particle deposition to apply a range of metal coatings to metal parts, enabling quicker restoration of surfaces and geometries by hand or robotics. Once sprayed, metal parts can be machined to final tolerance in house, enabling an increase self-sufficiency while reducing lead times and costs.

Scott Farrell, Innovation and Strategy Executive of Brauntell, commented, “Partnering with Titomic, we’re able to further expand our product offering to our customer base, leading to further opportunities within the market. This technology provides a simple, cost-effective repair and maintenance solution to mining and beyond. We’re excited for what’s to come in the near and distant future for this technology and this partnership.”
