Titomic Limited, an Australia-based specialist in metal additive manufacturing, is partnering with German producer of wear-resistant precision metal parts C.A. PICARD Group. Together, the companies will leverage Titomic’s Kinetic Fusion (TKF) technology to produce metal components for the extruder technology market. Titomic will use its proprietary metal AM process to develop and produce a hardened extrusion screw prototype at a preliminary cost of $25,965. The prototype part will aim to demonstrate how the TKF process can reduce the cost and improve test potential in wear resistant production. “Titomic’s partnering with C.A.PICARD to additively manufacture their extrusion screw products showcases the unique capability of Titomic Kinetic Fusion to utilise tooling steels to be cost competitive against traditional metal manufacturing processes,” commented Jeff Lang, Managing Director at Titomic. “We believe that by partnering with visionary industry leaders like C.A.PICARD, Titomic can improve the efficiency of metal manufacturing and mechanical performance properties, providing real commercial benefits to our customers. Once the extruder screw has been 3D printed and has undergon...
