PyroGenesis Canada Inc., Montreal, Quebec, Canada, has announced that it has received a signed order for 5 metric tonnes (5,000 kg) of its plasma atomised titanium metal powders for Additive Manufacturing. The down payment for this order has already been received.

“This order for 5,000 kg is the first ‘by-the-tonne’ commercial order received by the company for its atomised powder titanium metal powders produced using the Company’s NexGen plasma atomisation system,” said Massimo Dattilo, VP, PyroGenesis Additive. “This represents our full entrance into the titanium metal powders marketplace.”

The new client has reportedly also placed a provisional order for a further six tonnes (6,000 kg), contingent upon the client determining, at its discretion, the appropriate demand for additional powders.

The client (whose name is being withheld at its request) is reportedly an advanced materials company in the United States. However, PyroGenesis have clarified that this client is unrelated to the global aerospace OEM client for which the company continues the qualification process to become an approved supplier.

“With a goal to produce the highest quality metal powders in the Additive Manufacturing industry, PyroGenesis Additive has taken a cautious, methodical approach towards commercialisation of its powders as we designed, then readied, our new NexGen plasma atomisation process,” continued Dattilo. “As mentioned in our previous releases, we started with sample batches for key customers measured in dozens of grams, then progressed to small commercial orders of 100 kg each, with the stated goal to then move up to commercial production and sales ‘by-the-tonne.’ This has now been achieved with this multi-tonne order.”

The order will reportedly be completed at PyroGenesis’ production facility in Montreal. The majority of the initial 5 tonne of titanium metal powder order will be shipped during the second quarter of 2023, with the balance of the order set for completion before the end of the third quarter 2023.
