voestalpine plans to develop powder types that are more corrosion-resistant and stronger for increasingly sophisticated applications.

The voestalpine Group’s High Performance Metals Division plans to invest €20 million in expanding metal powder production for additive manufacturing (AM) at its subsidiaries Böhler Edelstahl GmbH and Co KG, Austria, and Uddeholms AB, Sweden.

Voestalpine says that it is a global pioneer in 3D printing and wants to push ahead with its activities in this area by setting up new research and development centers in non-European growth markets.

At its new center it plans to develop powder types that are more corrosion-resistant and stronger for increasingly sophisticated applications.
