Advanced metal powder supplier VTECH, headquartered in Changsha City, Hunan, China, showcased its wide range of metal powders suitable for Additive Manufacturing at the recent World Congress on Powder Metallurgy (WORLDPM2018), held in Beijing, China, September 16-20, 2018. The company’s main focus is on titanium-based powders, but it also manufactures cobalt, nickel, stainless steel, copper and aluminium-based alloy powders.

The biennial World Powder Metallurgy Congress and Exhibition, which alternates between Europe, North America and Asia, was held in China for the first time this year. Organised by the Chinese Society of Metals (CSM) and China Powder Metallurgy Alliance (CPMA), the event brought delegates from China and the rest of the world together with a focus on metal powder-based technologies including Powder Metallurgy, Additive Manufacturing and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM).

In addition to fine spherical metal powders for Additive Manufacturing, VTECH can provide powders suited to thermal spray, Metal Injection Moulding and laser cladding applications. The company can also provide custom powders and has a strict quality control process.

Established in 2014, VTECH holds a number of national patents in material manufacturing and Additive Manufacturing equipment. The company is currently developing what it calls a ‘Quick Atomisation’ process for the manufacture of micro-nano metal powders for AM. Working with partners in Hong Kong, VTECH has also collaborated to build a demonstration centre for Additive Manufacturing to boost the growth of science, technology and industry in Hong Kong.
