Carpenter Technology Corporation, headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, has formed a new business unit, Carpenter Additive. The company anticipates that the new business unit will help build on its reputation as an established powder metals supplier, to become an influential leader in the Additive Manufacturing industry.
Carpenter Additive offers a comprehensive range of off-the-shelf metal powders under its PowderRange brand. Optimised for use in metal AM machines, the metal powder is sold in multiples of 10 kgs and orders are dispatched within 24 hours. The range of stock powders includes Aluminium, Scalmalloy, Cobalt, Copper, Nickel, Refractory metals (Tantalum, Tungsten, Molybdenum), Steel, Titanium and Tungsten Carbide.
In addition to its PowderRange, Carpenter Additive can size powders and produce materials to meet individual customer specifications. From a single metal powder test to new alloy development, the company can design and develop novel metal alloys, atomised in-house.
Prototyping and test builds can be performed on its range of AM machines, as well as offering full machining, heat-treatment, HIP, post-build clean-up and inspection capabilities along with mechanical, physical characterisation and complete qualification data packages.
“From powder production to manufacturing and finishing parts, the full spectrum of our capabilities is what differentiates Carpenter Additive from the rest of the AM industry,” stated Tony R. Thene, Chief Executive Officer, Carpenter Technology. “We are revolutionising how customers approach this disruptive technology by offering end-to-end solutions through an array of technical expertise, powder production, parts production, and material life-cycle management.
