Norsk Titanium réussit les essais du composant Rapid Plasma Deposition™ avec Thales Alenia Space

Norsk Titanium AS, fournisseur pionnier mondial de composants structurels en titane de qualité aérospatiale, de fabrication additive, a annoncé la conclusion des essais de son matériau Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) avec Thales Alenia Space, la co-entreprise entre Thales (67 %) et Leonardo (33 %) afin de mettre au point, de produire et de tester les composants utilisés lors des vols spatiaux.

En vertu d'un contrat signé en 2016, Norsk Titanium a collaboré avec Thales Alenia Space pour mettre au point, produire et tester un composant de qualification initial. Conformément aux termes du protocole de test, Norsk Titanium a évalué l'appropriation de leur matériau RPD™ pour remplacer les forgeages de la forme quasi définitive des applications utilisées lors des vols spatiaux. Norsk Titanium est ravi d'annoncer la réussite des essais mécaniques complétés, et que le matériau RPD™ a répondu conformément aux exigences élaborées en commun.

« Norsk Titanium est enchantée de développer davantage nos relations avec Thales Alenia Space » a déclaré le PDG de Norsk Titanium Warren M. Boley Jr. « Parallèlement à nos récentes réussites commerciales dans l'aérospatial, ce succès confirme davantage que le matériau Rapid Plasma Deposition™ de Norsk Titanium est prêt à supporter les exigences rigoureuses du marché spatial, en révolutionnant la méthode avec laquelle le secteur incorpore le titane dans ses conceptions cruciales. »

La réussite de ces essais a positionné Norsk Titanium en tant que fournisseur de premier plan dans la fabrication additive de composants structurels destinés aux familles de produits de Thales Alenia Space. L'adoption du matériau RPD™ permet à Thales Alenia Space d'améliorer la performance du programme, en diminuant de moitié le rapport entre le poids de la matière première utilisée pour créer la pièce et le poids de la pièce elle-même et en réduisant les délais de fabrication de 6 mois.

« Thales Alenia Space est très heureux de confirmer que la solution Rapid Plasma Deposition™ de Norsk Titanium a été testée avec succès sur le plan mécanique. Thales Alenia Space construit des pièces de plus en plus grandes en utilisant la fabrication additive, ce qui représente un progrès important pendant la phase de fabrication » a expliqué Florence Montredon, Responsable des technologies de fabrication additive chez Thales Alenia Space.
