Headquartered in Wangara, Western Australia, Callidus has a fully equipped facility focusing on specific corrosion and erosion challenges customers face in the mining & oil & gas sector.
Titomic is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. The company overcomes limitations of previous additive manufacturing (3D printing) for metals to manufacture complex parts without shape or size constraints. Titomic offers design and manufacturing methods to enable speed-to-market, superior products at lower production costs and using less resources for a more sustainable future.
Titomic additive manufacturing machines that can customise build size to customer requirements offer additive manufacturing advantages at industrial scale. Multiple robots can be utilised to build larger parts, competing with traditional manufacturing solutions for industries such as aerospace and defence, sporting goods, medical, automotive, industrial equipment, construction and marine.
Other benefits of the Titomic Kinetic Fusion technology include:
- Joining dissimilar metals and composites for engineered properties in a structure
- Stronger structures without welding, folding or bending
- Reduced time to market; no tooling, industry-leading production speeds
Clients will be offered a licence to manufacture via the Titomic Kinetic Fusion technology. Titomic’s revenue model will also provide clients with R&D prototyping services, Titomic equipment sales, powder and consumables supply, equipment service and maintenance.
