Australia is home to the most valuable reserves of titanium bearing ore in the world.  The Commonwealth Science Industry Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia’s national science agency, has an integrated supply chain oriented development program specifically focussed on titanium production and processing.  Originally built off platforms for novel titanium metal production, the program has grown to include processing and manufacturing techniques including additive manufacturing and machining technologies.  Australia can now produce titanium metal.  To that end, CSIRO has been deploying scientists in concert with industry partners, to develop a means to enhance these technologies.  This presentation will focus on the state of the TiRO process, advances and unique capability that CSIRO has developed around metal production.  It will cover unique capabilities in metal production and implications on technologies like additive manufacturing.
