Sweden’s Sandvik has pre-launched a new online ordering ‘webshop’ for its range of Additive Manufacturing metal powders. Announced at Formnext 2022, Osprey® Online is expected to be launched in Q1 2023 and plans to offer a forty-eight-hour turnaround service, as well as 24/7 technical support.
With more than 160 years of materials expertise and forty-five years of experience in powder atomisation, Sandvik is a leading provider of gas-atomised metal powders for Additive Manufacturing and hosts a wide alloy range.
Formnext attendees can receive a live demo at the Sandvik booth in Hall 11, D21. By registering interest via the Osprey site, customers can receive a 5% discount on their first order. Also featured on the company booth are maraging steels (including some cobalt-free options), which are said to allow for substantial benefits in sustainability and shipping and the newly announced copper powder. These powders are manufactured in house, both pure and in a variety of alloyed variants. The material allows for greater control over factors such as thermal and electrical performance, size, shape, and weight of end components.
