We have won the design competition for the new titanium trophy for the Harvey Flower Prize fabricated using Additive Manufacturing.
The competition was launched by Titanium Information Group (TIG) “looking for a new design to celebrate the properties of titanium and highlight the capabilities of advanced manufacturing”.
Our proposal was designed for the process chosen for the production of the trophy, that it’s Arcam electron beam melting (EBM) with titanium powder (Ti6Al4V) and it will be made at the Mercury Centre and coloured using anodising by Poligrat, “to give it a striking blue and gold finish – displaying the attractive chromatic properties of titanium”.
About Harvey Flower Prize: “The Harvey Flower Prize is awarded annually to individuals in recognition of outstanding contribution to the development of titanum. The prize is dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Harevy Flower from Imperial College London whose outstanding contribution to the science and technology of titanium led to a clearer and fuller understanding of the metal and its alloy” (Source: NAMTEC – TIG)
