AP&C, the powder manufacturing subsidiary of Arcam, is continuously developing its technology. This latest advance, supporting increased atomization rates and yield, allows higher manufacturing rates of powder distributions dedicated for Additive Manufacturing equipment.
"With this new generation of atomizing technology, AP&C is now in a position to supply aerospace and medical part manufacturers' titanium powders in volumes needed today and in the future. With a multiple reactor operation, AP&C can produce its standard products on dedicated reactors and equipment, therefore eliminating cross-contamination risks," says Jacques Mallette, President of AP&C.
AP&C completed its third reactor in May 2015, with the expansion raising its atomization capacity to over 150 tons of titanium alloys per year.
