H.C. Starck Tantalum and Niobium introducing AMtrinsic metal powder range for Additive Manufacturing

October 3, 2019

H.C. Starck Tantalum and Niobium GmbH, Goslar, Germany, will launch a new range of atomised tantalum and niobium powders and alloys designed specifically for metal AM processes this November. Under the brand name AMtrinsic®, the new powders are suitable for a wide range of demanding applications.

Tantalum and niobium, as well as alloys containing these elements, offer a unique set of properties including high melting point, high corrosion resistance, excellent chemical resistance and high thermal and electrical conductivity. This makes them ideal for high-tech applications in fields such as chemical processing, superconductors, energy and high-temperature environments. 

In addition, parts additively manufactured from Ta/Nb containing alloys may offer an alternative for the optimisation of mechanical and biological performance parameters in medical implants. Multinary alloy compositions or high-entropy alloys containing Ta/Nb are said to be especially of interest for the design of completely new intrinsic material properties that can provide superior solutions in challenging applications, especially when combined with the freedom of geometric design available using AM.

“We see the introduction of our new Additive Manufacturing brand AMtrinsic as an important milestone in our new business development activities which should strengthen our position in the continuously growing AM market,” stated Melanie Stenzel, Head of Marketing and New Business Development.
