Technology for producing thin titanium sheet
Light Metals Flagship researchers are developing technology to produce continuous titanium sheets from titanium powder. This technology has the potential to expand titanium use into domestic and industrial products.
Thermally Assisted Machining
CSIRO has developed an improved machining process for titanium metal and its alloys by using a localised high energy heat source, such as a laser beam, in conjunction with cutting tools.
Making titanium metal powder
CSIRO scientists are developing a novel, high-efficiency process for making titanium metal with the aim of paving the way for a revolution in titanium metal production and fabrication.
CSIRO has recently established an Arcam additive manufacturing facility, the first in the southern hemisphere, to provide industry with access to advanced electron beam melting technologies for three-dimensional (3D) printing of metals.
CSIRO is leading development in additive manufacturing and machining technologies for premium materials such as titanium.
Cold spray technology
Cold gas-dynamic spray technology, or Cold Spray technology, is a rapidly emerging industrial coatings technology.
