Numanova, an Italeaf company based in Italy which produces metal powders from ferrous and non ferrous metal alloys for additive manufacturing (AM) and other industries has received a municipal license to produce metal powders.

The company plans to install two melting and gas atomization industrial plants for metal alloys at the industrial area of Nera Montoro (TR). These comprise:

EIGA (electrode induction-melting inert gas atomization) process for the production of metal powders from titanium and aluminum alloys, refractory materials, ceramics and precious metal alloys

VIGA (vacuum induction-melting inert gas atomization) process for the production of ferrous metal powders and alloys of nickel, cobalt and zirconium

The powders will be suitable for AM, metal injection molding (MIM), hot isostatic pressing (HIP), PTA and laser cladding for industrial sectors such as aerospace, energy, automotive, mechanical and biomedical.
