PyroGenesis in talks to supply titanium powders to 'leading 3D printer OEM'

PyroGenesis Canada Inc., Montreal, Quebec, Canada, a manufacturer of plasma atomised spherical metallic powders and metal powder production equipment for the Additive Manufacturing and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) industries, states that its powders have either met or exceeded property requirements under intensive chemical and mechanical analysis by “a leading 3D printer OEM.”

The powder tested was plasma atomised Ti-6Al-4V Grade 23, with analysis consisting of, amongst other things, a validation of chemical composition, properties during part builds, density, hardness and tensile strength. While PyroGenesis withheld the name of the client for competitive reasons, it stated that the two companies have now begun commercial discussions.

The company is in discussions to become a supplier of powders to the client, as well as an approved supplier to its end-users, making its powders available to all users of the client’s Additive Manufacturing systems either via the client or directly from PyroGenesis.

Massimo Dattilo, Vice President Sales of PyroGenesis, stated, “This is indeed an incredible milestone and achievement when considering the short amount of time from when PyroGenesis announced it was re-entering the powder production business.”

“Of note, this is not the only printer OEM we are in discussions with,” Dattilo added. “We have made significant inroads to being approved on other printer types as well and we look forward to making additional announcements as events unfold.”

Peter Pascali, CEO and President of PyroGenesis, commented, “This announcement, the first of its type for PyroGenesis, is another step towards PyroGenesis’ goal of becoming a leading powder supplier to the Additive Manufacturing industry.”

“We are cautiously optimistic and recognise that a successful conclusion of these discussions, if and when they occur, is dependent on many things outside of PyroGenesis’ control,” he concluded.
