Since its establishment in 2014, Material Technology Innovations Co., Ltd (MTI), Guangzhou, China, reports that it has seen ongoing growth in the Additive Manufacturing sector. The company manufactures metal powders for Additive Manufacturing, thermal spray and Metal Injection Moulding applications and currently operates out of a 1,200 m2 facility equipped with gas and water atomisation systems.
MTI’s metal powder portfolio includes cobalt based alloys, stainless steels, titanium alloys and nickel alloys. In addition, the company works with partners on customised alloy development, and operates an ongoing programme of research and development, using state-of-art equipment to study the properties of metals and their performance.
The company recently won a ‘High-tech Enterprise’ award, issued jointly by the Government Science and Technology Department of Guangdong Province, Guangdong Provincial Department of Finance, National Taxation of Guangdong Province and Local Taxation Bureau of Guangdong Province. This award recognises the company’s performance in materials science and new materials technology, as well as its “tenacious spirit of independent innovation.”
In addition, in March 2018, MTI achieved both ISO 13485:2012 Certification and the CE Certificate for Cobalt Based Dental Alloy for 3D Printing, reportedly becoming the one of first companies to obtain CE certification for this type of product. The company stated that receiving CE Certification marks the products of Material Technology Innovations as having reached an internationally advanced level in terms of quality and safety performance, and expects this to help accelerate the pace at which it is able to gain entry into overseas markets.
