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 undergone test trials by C.A. PICARD, Titomic will proceed by negotiating a contract to supply production for single, twin and multi-screw extrusion systems. The parts, developed by C.A. PICARD and distributed to over 50 countries, will be 3D printed at Titomic’s TKF Melbourne Bureau.

“We are committed to producing the best quality parts for the Extruder market and are pleased to be working with Titomic to bring their state of the art Titomic Kinetic Fusion Process on board,” added Michael Busenbecker, Global Head of Research and Development. “We believe that the future lies in finding efficiency without compromising on value and quality and we look forward to working with Titomic on this project.”

C.A. PICARD’s main markets are based in Europe, Asia, America and the Far East. The quickly growing plastic extrusion machine market reportedly generated $6.05 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach $8.24 billion by 2025.

As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
