GKN Aerospace, Phoenix Scientific Industries Ltd., Metalysis and University of Leeds Commence Collaborative Research to Create Additive Material for Aerospace
Apr 17 15
GKN Aerospace is to lead a three year, £3.1 million collaborative research programme to develop titanium powder specifically formulated and blended to meet the needs of additive manufacturing (AM) of aerospace components. The programme, called TiPOW (Titanium Powder for net-shape component manufacture) will also commence work developing the techniques and equipment that will produce the powder consistently, in quantity and at a lower price. The TiPOW programme is backed by the UK's Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and Innovate UK. Consortium partners include UK companies Phoenix Scientific Industries Ltd. and Metalysis and the University of Leeds. As programme leader, GKN's aerospace business will also draw on the expertise of the GKN Powder Metallurgy division a supplier of metal powders and precision engineered components. Additive manufacturing uses alloys and powders that have not been developed for these processes and so are not optimised for this environment. Together the partners will investigate developing titanium alloys and powders with the characteristics that are specifically suited to AM. They will then define the production methods that will produce AM-designed materials to ensure cost is minimised whilst production quality, quantity and consistency all meet the rigorous standards required by aerospace. The TiPOW programme will also explore effective re-use and recycling of titanium material, and a study of potential applications for the recycled material. The TiPOW programme forms one element in a major AM research and development initiative across GKN, and will run alongside another GKN Aerospace-led, ATI supported, programme called 'Horizon (AM)'. This programme aims to take a number of promising AM techniques through to viable production processes. Five dedicated AM development centres have been established in North America and Europe each clearly focused on progressing specific additive processes and technologies.
