Kaman receives initial award from leading eVTOL company for components utilising its titanium diffusion hardening process
Monday, 1 November 2021

Kaman announce that its subsidiary Kamatics Corporation ("Kamatics") received an initial award to provide components manufactured using its proprietary Titanium Diffusion Hardening process ("TDH") to a leading eVTOL manufacturer. Kaman's TDH process opens up new engineered applications by providing the lightweight and high strength benefits of titanium alloys while improving surface hardness, durability, and wear characteristics. TDH produces a deep, super hard, high-finished case layer that is up to 200 microns deep with up to 62 RCH, which expands its use in bearings and other kinematic systems that benefit from titanium's inherent properties.

Rob Paterson, President of Kamatics, stated, "We have always prided ourselves on pushing the boundaries in material science and application engineering. This initial award from a leading eVTOL company continues to validate the benefits of our TDH process, which allows our customer to utilise titanium in applications where lightweight, highly durable solutions are needed. We see significant opportunities to expand our product offering utilising our TDH process across a broad range of end markets, including eVTOL, space, aerospace and defense, medical and industrial."

Kamatics has been a trusted partner in the commercial aerospace industry for over 55 years and is a leader in designing, testing, and manufacturing the highest performing bearings, drive systems and operational critical parts in the industry, excelling under the most demanding conditions. They continue to excel at innovating solutions for their customers most critical challenges.
