Dr Christian Doblin
Dr Christian Doblin is an engineer working to scale up CSIRO's titanium metal production process, TiRO™, to demonstration plant status.
Using nanotechnology and conductive polymers to develop a new generation of plastic electronics will change our lives in much the same way as the first microchip did.
The Future Manufacturing Flagship is taking titanium technologies from ore to more, building on Australia's world ranking reserves of ore, with our portfolio of advanced metal production and fabrication technologies.
We draw on a broad base of expertise to deliver our portfolio, including chemists, physicists, engineers, materials scientists, polymer specialists and environmental scientists.
CAANEVI, a Chinese-Australian alliance offers Australian manufacturers early opportunities to enter Chinese automotive component supply chains.
Want titanium for your cranium?
Each year, the CSIRO Titanium Challenge calls on university students to learn about what a totally awesome material titanium is - and to show us what we could do with it!
Teaming up on titanium: CSIRO joins forces with US
US Energy Department Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with CSIRO to explore ways to improve efficiency for powders used as feedstock in the production of titanium components.
Titanium metal production
CSIRO supports the development of an Australian titanium metal production industry through advanced metal production technologies.
Powder to product
CSIRO aims to stimulate an Australian titanium industry with applied research on production of feedstock products including titanium sheet and wire.
Creating precision optics
You want something impossibly smooth, round or flat? At CSIRO Optics we've been manufacturing with precision for more than fifty years.
The February 2011 issue of Process highlights a number of projects where CSIRO’s expertise is being applied to increase the economic and environmental viability of mineral processes. (12 pages)
