Arcast Inc. has installed an inert gas atomiser at the new Royce Translational Centre (RTC) in Sheffield, Yorkshire, UK. The centre is part of the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials at the University of Sheffield and aims to evolve novel materials and processing techniques developed by research teams and make them accessible for trial by industry.

As part of this project, Arcast was chosen to supply an inert gas atomiser for the production of advanced alloy powders. The system is reportedly capable of producing large quantities of clean, spherical, fine metal powders based on titanium, iron, cobalt, nickel and many other alloys, and is complemented with a wide range of other advanced casting and Powder Metallurgy equipment.

The RTC hopes to situate itself as an important centre for the advancement of technology in the field of Additive Manufacturing, and will allow the full scope of materials science to be explored in this field from raw elemental metallurgy, through the Powder Metallurgy route to finished components, using the latest in powder production and AM techniques.
