Titomic and Repkon JV to produce weapon barrels in Australia

Titomic has entered a joint venture with Repkon Machine and Tool Industry to build a production facility in Australia for the manufacture of weapons system barrels designed by Repkon and manufactured using Titomic’s Kinetic Fusion Technology.

Interim CEO of Titomic Norbet Schulze said the new production facility would provide jobs for highly skilled workers and contribute to the national Industry 4.0 manufacturing agenda.

“We are excited about the possibility of working with Repkon to manufacture barrels in Australia using our Kinetic Fusion Technology, enhancing the Australian manufacturing ecosystem,” he said.

This facility will enhance Australian defence manufacturing capabilities and open up export opportunities for the supply of barrels globally.

It will leverage the unique flow forming capabilities of Repkon and the rapid Titomic additive manufacturing TKF process to deliver high performance barrels.

“Titomic is a leading company with proven reliability in metal additive manufacturing so, having them as our joint venture partner, will be extremely beneficial in producing and selling barrels designed by Repkon,” Repkon CEO Ibrahim Kulec said.
