Powder manufacturer PyroGenesis Canada says that its new additive manufacturing (AM) titanum powder production line is now online.

According to the company the NexGen line has an increased production rate of 25kg/h or more, lower CAPEX and OPEX and a narrower particle size distribution.

PyroGenesis will perform a number of test-runs to confirm batch to batch consistency and expects to start delivering powders before the end of Q2 2021.

‘In addition to the increased production rates and yields afforded by NexGen, the downstream changes that we have also incorporated into the process now allow for even further control over powder morphology, or more specifically, powder particle shape and distribution,’ said Massimo Dattilo, VP of PyroGenesis Additive.
