Norsk Titanium AS, a global supplier of additive manufactured titanium components, has signed a long term agreement (LTA) with aircraft component manufacturer Mecachrome to deliver finished structural titanium components for aerospace produced by Norsk’s (rapid plasma deposition) RPD process to 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 in the UK.

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.

‘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,’ said Norsk Titanium CEO Warren M Boley Jr.
