A CSIRO – backed Melbourne manufacturer, Titomic, launched the world’s largest metal 3D printer – about the size of a city bus – for the first time at an unveiling ceremony in Melbourne on Wednesday 16th May.
According to the Australian Financial Review, the Australian-built metal 3D printer has the potential to manufacturer aircraft wings, ship hulls, submarines and rocket fuselage and is shaping as a global game changer.
Titomic is a new Kinetic fusion technology co-developed with the CSIRO. Developers suggest it may be the beginning of industrial scale additive manufacturing. Titomic is already 10-100 times faster than the fastest commercially available 3D printers on earth.
