H.C. Starck Surface Technology and Ceramic Powders GmbH, Laufenburg and Goslar, Germany, is introducing a new range of gas atomised metal powders. Titled AMPERPRINT® metal powders, the new range will be designed specifically for metal Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing).

The AMPERPRINT range of powders will include nickel, cobalt and iron based powders of all major standard compositions, as well as customised solutions. According to H.C. Starck, its high-end technology concept will enable production to be ramped up efficiently while keeping physical and chemical powder properties consistent.

For optimal results, H.C. Starck reports that its gas atomised metal Additive Manufacturing powders are fully dense, have an excellent flowability, a spherical shape and high reproducibility. They will be available in a wide range of particle size distributions covering the full range of AM processes, including but not limited to Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and Laser Metal Deposition (LMD).

Shashi Shukla, CEO of H.C. Starck Surface Technology and Ceramic Powders GmbH, stated that the introduction of the AMPERPRINT concept is a further milestone to strengthen H.C. Starck’s position in the continuously growing AM market. To fulfill customer requirements, H.C. Starck has also launched a new website dedicated to AM.
