With the pressure of increased threats, today’s modern combat vehicles must be lighter, more mobile and better protected than ever. And while titanium has always been an option, it’s been hampered by high costs, complex manufacturing techniques and availability.
By bringing together a cost-effective and novel source of high-performance titanium with high-speed additive manufacturing technology, it’s now possible to produce larger, lighter armour at a competitive price point.
