Highlighting the Norsk Titanium exhibit is a full-scale mock-up of the company’s patented MERKE IV™ Rapid Plasma Deposition™ machine that has been qualified at the world’s top echelon of aircraft manufacturers to produce structural titanium components. The MERKE IV™ exhibit features integral viewing monitors showing how the RPD™ process works during aerospace production operations, and a production operator will be on-hand to answer questions and demonstrate RPD™ parts produced by a MERKE IV™ machine.

The booth also features an interactive aircraft component exhibit where attendees can follow the RPD™ process from the refining of titanium through the additive manufacturing phase and to final installation on a composite aircraft. The museum-like experience allows guests to pick up and examine titanium parts in the three major stages of manufacture: (i) RPD™ near-net-shape, (ii) ultrasonic inspection form, and (iii) finished part.

“Our interactive exhibit has been designed to show the world how Norsk Titanium is disrupting the status quo of aircraft part manufacturing in a way that drives significant value to our aerospace OEM customers and their suppliers,” said Norsk Titanium CEO Warren M. Boley Jr. “We are excited to show off our RPD™ process and interactive aircraft component exhibit to the aerospace industry attendees at this year’s show.”
