Titomic Limited, Brisbane, Australia, a developer of cold spray metal Additive Manufacturing technology with primary applications in the aerospace and defence industries, reports that it has received purchase orders from Australian-based companies for four separate D523 low-pressure cold spray metal Additive Manufacturing machines, totalling AUD $314,900 in sales.
The machines have been sold to four businesses in the engine remanufacturing and rail transport sectors, all of which are looking to add in-house capability for ongoing component services and repairs to maximise their equipment uptime while minimising maintenance costs. This represents the first sale of D523 cold spray machines – used primarily for the rapid restoration of coatings and parts – into the transport sector.
The sale of these machines follows the sale of one D523 to Titomic’s Authorised Service Provider, Brauntell, and another D523 to oil and gas engineering company, DNC Coatings, in the Asia-Pacific region.
Herbert Koeck, Managing Director of Titomic, commented, “The sale of these four D523 systems into the Australian transport industry expands the reach and highlights the universal need for the in-the-field servicing capability provided by these systems. The D523 system’s capability of making parts, repairing damaged or corroded parts, and general maintenance on-site in a quick turnaround time, ultimately leads to higher profitability for users and secures their supply chains.”
“The sales of the D523 systems follow on from the Dycomet acquisition in December last year, enabling Titomic to be the only global supplier of low, medium, and high-pressure cold spray systems,” he continued. “With this ability, Titomic can partner with businesses across multiple regions in the engine remanufacturing and rail transport sectors by offering technology which complements those existing manufacturers.”
