Titomic Limited, an Australian public company specializing in large integrated solutions for industrial-scale metal additive manufacturing, has received a purchase order from the French Ministry of the Armed Forces for a D523 low-pressure cold spray system. The sale was made to the Ministry for EUR 58,379 (AUD 99,168), which purchased the D523 on behalf of the Fleet Support Service of the Navy Nationale (French Navy).

It is expected that the D523 will be used to sustain and maintain the French Navy’s fleet, and specifically to treat corrosion, restore worn surfaces, and restore part geometries in-situ – enabling faster, more cost-effective maintenance.

The sale highlights Titomic’s entry into the European defense industry, demonstrating growing relevance in the maritime domain, particularly for naval purposes. The sale not only establishes a compelling precedent for other navies globally but also reinforces the notion that such ventures hold considerable promise on an international scale.

“This sale of a D523 cold spray system to the French Navy marks a notable achievement for Titomic. This strategic entry into the European defense sector sets the stage for potential growth and collaboration and provides a further platform to demonstrate Titomic’s innovative technology in the European defense industry,” said Herbert Koeck, Managing Director of Titomic. “We look forward to continuing to grow sales throughout Europe and other key markets globally, with this sale demonstrating the growing confidence and awareness of Titomic’s unique technological capabilities.”
