Carpenter Technology begins production of high-strength, low-oxygen titanium powder

June 20, 2017

Carpenter Technology Corporation, Philadelphia, PA, USA, has announced the production of CARTECH® PURIS 5+™, claimed to be the market’s first high-strength, low-oxygen titanium powder solution.

A custom composition of Ti-6AI-4V that meets all Grade 5 specifications, the company states that the powder signals a breakthrough in additive manufacturers’ ability to better control oxygen content inherent to their processes without compromising powder strength.

“Balancing oxygen levels with desired strength properties is a challenge in Additive Manufacturing. CARTECH PURIS 5+ provides the simultaneous optimisation of powder recyclability and strength, alleviating concerns about using low oxygen powder (to maximise powder reuse) while still exceeding standard strength requirements,” explained Michael Murtagh, Carpenter’s Chief Technology Officer. “CARTECH PURIS 5+ makes this balance easier, more efficient and more effective from the start and throughout the titanium powder lifecycle.”

CARTECH PURIS 5+ is Carpenter Technology’s first major powder product introduction since its acquisition of Puris, LLC earlier this year.

“The future of aerospace hinges on advancing Additive Manufacturing technology,” stated Tony R Thene, Carpenter’s Chief Executive Officer. “It’s an exciting, yet complex process with enormous potential and it requires extensive metallurgical expertise, in addition to quality powder products. Carpenter Technology is well-positioned to provide these value-added solutions to customers.”
