Norsk Titanium receives Boeing engineering test article order

Norsk Titanium AS, the world’s pioneering supplier of aerospace-grade, additive manufactured, structural titanium components today announced it has received an order for titanium engineering test articles from The Boeing Company produced by Norsk’s proprietary Rapid Plasma Deposition (RPD) process. Terms of the purchase order were not released.

“We are pleased with Boeing’s thoughtful review of structural titanium components made by our RPD™ process,” said Norsk Titanium President & Chief Executive Officer Warren M. Boley, Jr. “Together, we seek to create significant customer value by reducing cost and lead time from their premier commercial airplane platforms.”

The engineering test article order involves Norsk Titanium producing titanium Ti-6Al-4V additive manufactured preforms, and delivering them to Boeing for further testing and evaluation.

“I’d like to congratulate the Boeing and Norsk teams on achieving this milestone through many months of diligence and hard work,” said Norsk Titanium Chief Commercial Officer Chet Fuller. “Although it is still early in the qualification process, we are pleased with the steady progress, including evaluations of our MERKE IV production machine, as well as this latest test article order. This activity follows evaluations of the MERKE III production machine, qualified under the Boeing Material Specification, back in February.”

The manufacture, test and analysis of Norsk Titanium’s RPD preforms is designed to demonstrate part to part repeatability and the operations processes necessary to enter into long term production of structural components for fleet aircraft.
