Norsk Titanium AS (Norsk Titanium), a global leader in metal 3D printing through its Rapid Plasma Deposition® (RPD®) technology and ongoing part sales to the highly regulated Commercial Aerospace industry, today releases its second half of 2021 report and presentation noting key successes.

With RPD® printed parts in production for the Boeing 787, Norsk Titanium builds on a strong manufacturing foundation as they expand into other industries. During the second half of 2021, Norsk Titanium continued to progress with testing for the defense industry and delivered its first industrial scale part using its Software Development Kit, RPD Builder™.

“Although our largest opportunity continues to be in commercial aerospace structural parts, we capitalized on the slow-down in the commercial aerospace market to expand our reach to the defense sector and other industries, which has allowed us to further develop our product design capabilities. In the second half of 2021, we achieved a major milestone by delivering the first part designed with our RPD Builder™ Software Development Kit,” says Michael J. Canario, CEO of Norsk Titanium. “We closed 2021 actively working with global, tier-one customers across a variety of industries and part complexities, all in different stages of RPD® technology adoption. I am excited to see this expansion of our capabilities into new markets as we continue our progress in commercial aerospace and look forward to building on these efforts in 2022 and beyond.”
