Spherical. Pure. Plasma Atomized.
PyroGenesis Additive, a division of PyroGenesis Canada Inc., the inventor of Plasma Atomization, specializes in providing plasma atomized spherical metallic powders with some of the most spherical, pure, dense, and highly flowable properties, which are highly sought after in the Additive Manufacturing (“AM”) industry. With PyroGenesis’ extensive plasma expertise, PyroGenesis Additive is not only able to convert traditional metals and alloys into high purity spherical powders, but also create specialty powders on an exclusive basis. The versatility of the process allows PyroGenesis Additive to quickly adapt to a customer’s needs in terms of controlling the Particle Size Distribution (PSD) of the bulk powder, it can produce any size cut with little to no waste which is game changing for the industry as it significantly reduces costs to the end-user. The metal powders produced by PyroGenesis Additive are ideal for the additive manufacturing, aerospace, biomedical, thermal spray, and metal injection molding industries.
Advantages of our atomized metal powders:
The video above represents an independent third-party analysis of the properties of PyroGenesis Additive’ titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) powders in comparison to a well-known titanium powder supplier. This third-party analyzed common powder properties such as sphericity, density, and purity, using a cutting-edge digital imaging technique. During this process, PyroGenesis’ titanium powders were scanned using a Nikon XT H 225 X-ray mCT system. The volume was then reconstructed with a voxel size of 1.1 µm3 and analyzed with the Dragonfly V3 powder analysis routine. Results show that PyroGenesis Additive powders are highly spherical (in yellow on the video), and have little-to-no porosity
PyroGenesis is the inventor of Plasma Atomization with its original patent dating back to 1995. Recently the company filed for additional patent protection for improvements of its system. The versality of its process allows PyroGenesis Additive to quickly adapt to a customer’s needs in terms of controlling the Particle Size Distribution (PSD) of the bulk powder, it can produce any size cut with little to no waste which significantly reduces costs to the end-user. PyroGenesis’ System uses Plasma Atomization to make small, uniform, fully dense and spherical metal powders that flow like water, and which are highly sought after in the Additive Manufacturing (“AM”) industry and the Metal Injection Moulding (“MIM”) industry. Using wire as the feedstock, PyroGenesis’ system allows for a high level of traceability and unparalleled control of particle size which are critical requirements.
The standard offering includes commercially pure titanium (CPTi), grade 1, Ti 6Al-4V, grades 5 and 23, as well as Inconel; however customary offerings can be made. For more information, please contact our sales team.
