PyroGenesis says that its metal powders have either met or exceeded properties requirements under chemical and mechanical analysis conducted by a 3D printer OEM.

The 3D printing company tested was Ti-6Al-4V grade 23 powder, looking at chemical composition, printing properties, density, hardness and tensile strength.

‘This announcement, the first of its type for PyroGenesis, is another step towards PyroGenesis’ goal of becoming a leading powder supplier to the additive manufacturing industry (AM),’ said Mr. P Peter Pascali, CEO and president of PyroGenesis. ‘We are cautiously optimistic and […] are now more focused than ever on the need to address increased market expectations.’
