Metal powder producer Atomising Systems Ltd (ASL) says that it has installed a new 400 kg gas atomizer aimed specifically at the additive manufacturing (AM) and metal injection molding (MIM) powder markets. 

The in-house designed atomiser is equipped with ASL’s proprietary anti-satellite and hot gas system which can produce high yields of MIM and or AM powders, the company said. While ASL is a specialist in the production of stainless steel powders, it can also produce low alloy and Ni based alloys.

The company is also installing an additional melter.

‘The addition of another atomizer, along with the associated sieving and classification equipment means that we are able to keep pace with the growth of our existing client base and the requirements of new clients, especially in the AM and MIM sectors,’ said commercial director, Paul Rose.
