Intent is to advance sustainable titanium manufacturing.

Intent is to advance sustainable titanium manufacturing.

IperionX Limited acknowledges an order with GKN Aerospace for the delivery of titanium plate test components manufactured with IperionX’s advanced titanium technologies.

GKN Aerospace is a multi-technology ‘Tier-1’ aerospace supplier and serves over 90% of the world’s aircraft and engine manufacturers, designing and manufacturing smart aerospace systems and components.

The collaboration with GKN Aerospace builds on the testing and validation of IperionX 100% recycled titanium powder made from GKN scrap titanium feedstocks. This latest commercial partnership focuses on the manufacturing of high-performance titanium plate for testing by GKN Aerospace, which may also form part of collaboration efforts between GKN Aerospace and IperionX—including projects linked to the U.S. Department of Defense.

GKN Aerospace’s titanium plate components will be manufactured with IperionX’s advanced titanium angular powder and powder metallurgy techniques.

To deliver titanium components with performance and durability, IperionX will employ its Hydrogen Sintering and Phase Transformation (HSPT) technologies, a process to enhance the microstructure of titanium to deliver strength and fatigue properties comparable to wrought titanium alloys.

IperionX offers high-performance titanium powder and products that can be tailored to meet demands of the aerospace, defense, space, hydrogen, automotive and consumer electronics sectors. These advanced manufacturing capabilities include traditional titanium plate, bar and rod products and high-performance ‘near-net shape’ titanium components to improve manufacturing productivity and sustainability.

“GKN Aerospace is a leader in sustainability and the precision manufacturing of titanium components for the aerospace, space and military markets,” says Taso Arima, CEO of IperionX. “We are very proud to be working with GKN Aerospace to commercialize our market leading high-performance and sustainable titanium products.”
