PyroGenesis Canada Inc., Montreal, Canada, reports that it has received certification for the production of metal powders under a quality management system which complies with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008. This certification is an amendment to the company’s existing ISO certification, and pertains specifically to metal powder production. It was received under the auspices of independent risk and standards company SAI Global.

P. Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis, stated, “As we all know, having an ISO certification confirms that our management systems, manufacturing processes, and documentation procedures have met all the requirements for standardisation, quality assurance, traceability, and batch to batch consistency. This gives prospective customers assurances that our house is in order.  In addition, such efficient quality management systems will ultimately save time and money, as well as improve efficiencies.”

“We have found that many of our customers will only do business with vendors that are certified as ISO 9001 compliant,” he added, “and many requests for quotes are from companies that make ISO 9001 certification a ‘must-have.’ We are also in the process of applying to AS9100D for the aerospace industry, and ISO 13485 for the medical devices industry. In short, having this certification gives potential customers the additional confidence to accept PyroGenesis as a qualified vendor.”

With its extensive plasma expertise, PyroGenesis is able to convert many metals and alloys into high-purity spherical powders, as its plasma torches use argon gas and the reactor is backfilled with argon. This ensures that the powders produced are not exposed to any oxygen during the production process and as a result, PyroGenesis is able to produce powders with extremely low interstitial (ELI) such as Ti 6Al-4V ELI. The company’s standard offering includes commercially pure titanium (CPTi), grades 1, 2, and 3, and Ti 6Al-4V, grades 5 and 23.
