Norsk Titanium and Mecachrome announce aerospace Rapid Plasma Deposition supply chain solution

Norsk Titanium AS, the world's pioneering supplier of aerospace-grade, additive manufactured, structural titanium components, announced today the signing of a Long Term Agreement (LTA) containing terms under which Norsk Titanium and Mecachrome will deliver finished aerospace structural titanium components produced by Norsk's patented RPD process to current Mecachrome aerospace OEMs and their tier-1 suppliers. The contract was signed during a ceremony at Norsk Titanium's interactive additive manufacturing exhibit at the Farnborough International Airshow.

The deal is the latest in a series of integrated supply chain moves designed to insert Norsk Titanium's disruptive Rapid Plasma Deposition capacity smoothly and efficiently into existing aerospace supply chains servicing the world's premier aerospace manufacturers.

Under the terms of the LTA, Norsk Titanium can procure finish machining, inspection and treatment services from Mecachrome for additive manufactured components that replace incumbent parts currently supplied by Mecachrome to the aerospace industry. Other contract terms and conditions were not disclosed.

“We applaud the foresight of Mecachrome to creatively interject our Rapid Plasma Deposition capability into their current supply chain for the benefit of their aerospace customers,” said Norsk Titanium CEO Warren M. Boley, Jr. “This deal complements and expands upon our current finish machining and inspection partners by providing us with new access to Mecachrome's captive titanium aerospace parts business.”

“Mecachrome is very excited about this partnership with Norsk Titanium and its very competitive technology,” said Mecachrome France CEO Arnaud de Ponnat. “This will bring the best of our two companies to the fast growing market of additive manufacturing.”
