Event Details

Based on South Africa’s position among the world’s four largest producers of titanium raw material, a national Titanium Metal Industry Strategy was developed by the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI). In 2009 the Titanium Centre of Competence was established as an implementation vehicle of this strategy. Additive Manufacturing of titanium alloys featured as one of the technology platforms of the Titanium Centre of Competence.

Following on the need for a national additive manufacturing plan expressed by the Rapid Product Development Association of South Africa (RAPDASA) in 2012, the DSI commissioned the development of a South African Additive Manufacturing Strategy. This strategy was published in 2016 (see SA AM Strategy) and provides guidance to South African players in identifying economic opportunities, addressing technology gaps, focusing development
programmes and informing investment decisions that would eventually enable individual local companies and industry sectors to become global leaders in selected areas of additive manufacturing.
