Bae-systems-logo_ExecutiveBiz1BAE Systems plc has opened a new $160.4 million facility in Australia that will manufacture titanium parts for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet, American Metal Market reported Dec. 6.

Frank Haflich writes that the new facility features a $10 million Starrag Group-built machining complex that is designed to produce aerospace titanium components that measure more than 16 feet long.

Haflich reports each F-35 could have approximately 45,000 pounds of titanium, supplied by Pittsburgh-based RTI International Metals Inc.

Lockheed Martin, the F-35’s developer, chose BAE to make more than 30 complex components for the F-35’s vertical fin and the components are shipped to Marand Precision Engineering, another Australian supplier for the F-35 program.
