Arcast to supply large-scale research gas atomiser to CEIT

September 24, 2018

Arcast Inc., Oxford, Maine, USA, is to supply a large-scale research inert gas atomiser to the Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Técnicas de Gipuzkoa (CEIT), San Sebastián, Spain. CEIT is a non-profit research centre and carries out applied industrial research projects under contract, working closely with clients’ R&D departments.

The Materials and Manufacturing division at CEIT includes Powder Metallurgy research, and is currently expanding its capabilities to develop new alloy powders for metal Additive Manufacturing, Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and other Powder Metallurgy markets. It belongs to the IK4 Research Alliance, a collective of seven research institutes from Spain’s Basque Country, and also has ties with Spain’s Tecnun School of Engineering, Germany’s Fraunhofer Society, and other R&D institutions and research centres globally.

The new atomiser will allow the use of various atomising geometries to produce complex alloys in batches of 50–250 kg. These features are said to offer a good capacity and capability to address the growing needs of the metal powder market. Arcast stated that it hopes to work with the team at CEIT to create larger quantities of advanced metal powders in the future.
