Titomic Limited, based in Brisbane, Australia, has announced that it has been selected by the Airbus Group as the chosen supplier for Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing, repairs, and maintenance equipment.

As part of the agreement, Airbus has issued a purchase order for two Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) machines for €386,900 (AU $645,000), subject to Airbus’ final configuration requirements.

The first is a D623 medium-pressure Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing machine, which will be installed onsite at Airbus. This machine will offer coatings and repair capabilities. The second, larger machine will be installed at Titomic’s European facility.

The TKF-based machine will enable the development of aerospace applications customised to meet Airbus’ specific needs. As the selected cold spray technology partner, Titomic will collaborate with Airbus to develop and enhance Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing processes and equipment in order to meet the rigorous requirements of the aerospace industry.

One result of this work is the integration of Titomic’s equipment and technology into Airbus maintenance protocols. Consequently, all Airbus Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facilities that intend to use cold spray applications must employ Titomic equipment and technology. This requirement ensures uniformity and compliance with Airbus standards throughout its MRO operations. This acknowledgement highlights the exceptional quality and dependability of Titomic’s Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing technology.

Herbert Koeck, Managing Director of Titomic, commented, “This is a significant development for us at Titomic and we are excited to embark on this strategic partnership with Airbus, further expanding our presence in the aerospace sector. This collaboration not only strengthens Titomic’s position as the global leader in cold spray technology, but also highlights the company’s commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions to the aerospace industry.”

“With demanding regulations and requirements, the aerospace market is difficult to enter. We are grateful to Airbus, our investors, and suppliers for supporting us in reaching this important milestone,” Koeck concluded.
