TiPOW is an initiative by a consortium of leading UK companies proposing to define the requirements and develop the processing techniques to provide high quality Titanium powder; enabling the production of aerospace components via 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM). AM is a revolutionary manufacturing technology with the potential to enable the production of highly complex lightweight aircraft and aero-engine parts using advanced production systems that in some cases print parts layer by layer from metal powders. The advanced components produced by AM can be up to 50% lighter than conventional components; constructed using completely new and novel designs, resulting in substantial weight reduction and increased efficiency & performance. GKN, global Tier 1 supplier for the Aerospace and Automotive industries has partnered with Metalysis, PSI and the University of Leeds for this project; each bringing a wealth of experience and background managing technology collaborations.

Development of an Additive Manufacturing EBM (electron beam melting) Cell – FILTON is an initiative led by GKN Aerospace; aimed at working toward the first qualified Additive Manufacturing R&D facility in the UK, specializing in developing high-value/high-complexity items via 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM). AM is a revolutionary manufacturing technology enabling the production of highly complex lightweight aircraft and aero-engine parts using advanced production systems by ‘printing’ parts layer by layer from metal powders. The advanced components produced by AM can be up to 50% lighter than conventional components, no waste, new and novel designs, resulting in substantial weight reduction and increased efficiency & performance. GKN, global Tier 1 supplier for the Aerospace and Automotive industries, brings a wealth of experience and background managing research & technology initiatives.
