The First 3d-printed Titanium Solid Soldier Drone Has Been Unveiled In Australia
Sep 06, 2018

Titomic, an Australian metal-adding manufacturing company, announced its first defence deal with TAUV, using the technology of Titomic Kinetic Fusion to produce rugged titanium soldier drones (uavs).


The rugged 3d-printed soldier uav titanium alloy prototype has been shortlisted for the 2018 innovation award at the international defense fair in Adelaide this week

A new Titomic Kinetic Fusion process developed by CSIRO, Australia's national science agency and Force Industries USES cold spraying technology but is used for 3D printing of titanium alloy parts.

The process involves spraying titanium powder into the chamber, where the gas is heated to accelerate the titanium particles through the nozzle and from the spray gun. Controlled by a mechanical arm, the gun is sprayed with an accurate pattern, and when particles "strike" each other on the surface, they bond at the mechanical level through a plastic deformation process.

In may, Titomic announced the launch of the world's largest metal 3D printer at its advanced facility in Melbourne, Australia. Based on traditional cold spraying technology, the new 3D printing process can be printed on a size of 9 meters long x 3 meters wide x 1.5 meters high. Bus-sized 3D printers can print large titanium parts at supersonic speeds - from golf clubs to complex airplane wings. It can print metal bike frames in about 25 minutes.

A sturdy, soldier-equipped titanium drone that increases stability and shock resistance, has tamper-proof payloads in enemy hands, easy to deploy for external mounting and forward reconnaissance routes.
