EADS signs cooperation agreement with Norsk Titanium Components

  • 17-Mar-2010 08:39 EDT

EADS signed a cooperation agreement with Norsk Titanium Components (NTiC) covering the development of near-net-shape, plasma-based layer manufacturing technologies for aerospace, defense, and space applications. NTiC has developed a near-net-shape additive layer manufacturing technology that enables the production of high-quality titanium components at a competitive cost. This process transforms inexpensive titanium feedstock into advanced components that are up to 90% finished in just three processing steps. It is said to significantly reduce the amount of raw material that has to be machined away to make complex parts. The agreement is a key step for NTiC to become a significant supplier to the aerospace and defense markets for titanium components. NTiC will cooperate with EADS Innovation Works as well as EADS divisions such as Airbus and EADS Astrium.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
