Manufacturing of customized metal powders

We offer development and manufacturing of customized metal powders with spherical pellets of various alloys and dispersions with high yield strength using our unique atomizer based on ultrasonic atomization technology.

Powder Bed Fusion

Powder Bed Fusion is an innovative technology for manufacturing geometrically complex products by application of the powder, layer after layer, and local melting of selected areas of each layer of the powders of various metal alloys to form a shape presented as a CAD model. As the source of energy, a high-power ytterbium fiber laser of continuous radiation is used. This process is successfully ousting out traditional manufacturing methods, as physical and mechanical properties of products manufactured with it, as well as their geometry, surpass those of analogs manufactured with traditional technologies
