A new collaborative research program led by GKN Aerospace will develop titanium powder specifically formulated and blended for additive manufacturing of aerospace components. The titanium powder for net-shape component manufacture (TiPOW) program will develop techniques and equipment to produce the powder consistently, in quantity and at a lower price. The program will also explore effective re-use and recycling of titanium, and study potential applications for the recycled material. The project is backed by the UK’s Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and Innovate UK. Consortium partners include UK companies Phoenix Scientific Industries Ltd., Metalysis and the University of Leeds.
