GKN Additive, has added AncorTi Beta 21S to its portfolio of AncorAM powders for additive manufacturing (AM). Beta 21S titanium (UNS R58210) is a high strength, heat treatable, metastable beta titanium alloy which has been designed to improving resistance to oxidation and creep, along with improved strength and stability in elevated temperatures, the company says. It can make parts for aerospace, medical, chemical and marine applications and can be used in electron beam melting (EBM) and selective laser melting (SLM) AM machines.

GKN Additive says that it continues to develop new powder alloys for additive manufacturing, including advanced titanium powders, specialized nickel-based alloys, and nickel-titanium powders engineered for use in advanced medical devices.
