PyroGenesis ships first commercial samples of NexGen plasma-atomised titanium AM powder

May 26, 2021

PyroGenesis Canada, Inc, Montreal, Québec, Canada, reports that since starting operation of its Additive Manufacturing NexGen™ powder production line, it has now shipped its first commercial samples of plasma-atomised titanium powder to a client serving the aerospace industry.

“These are the first samples shipped using PyroGenesis’ cutting-edge Additive Manufacturing (AM) NexGen™ powder production line,” stated P Peter Pascali, CEO and chair of PyroGenesis.

The company explains that the NexGen production line incorporates several revolutionary improvements such as the highest published production rate known to management, lower CAPEX, lower OPEX, while also providing a narrower particle size distribution. PyroGenesis is currently filling orders from several major top-tier aerospace companies and OEMs.

Massimo Dattilo, vice president of PyroGenesis Additive, commented, “This shipment represents the first of many expected shipments of PyroGenesis’ titanium powder. We are now in a position to fulfil the backlog of demand for our powders and we anticipate that these shipments will lead to further qualification steps and/or commercial orders. While waiting for our cutting-edge NexGen powder production line to come on stream, we have developed solid relationships with many major players in the aerospace, biomedical, and automotive sectors. Separately, and as we have mentioned in the past, the NexGen powder production process has resonance beyond titanium alloys, and we are eager to begin addressing these markets as well.”
