Carpenter Technology has introduced Cartech Puris 5+, which it says is the market’s first high-strength, low-oxygen titanium powder.

The powder is a custom composition of Ti-6AI-4V that reportedly meets all Grade 5 specifications.

‘Balancing oxygen levels with desired strength properties is a challenge in additive manufacturing,’ said explained Michael Murtagh, Carpenter’s chief technology officer. ‘Cartech Puris 5+ provides the simultaneous optimization of powder recyclability and strength, alleviating concerns about using low oxygen powder (to maximize powder reuse) while still exceeding standard strength requirements.;

Cartech Puris 5+ is Carpenter Technology’s first major powder product introduction since its acquisition of Puris, LLC earlier this year.

‘The future of aerospace hinges on advancing additive manufacturing technology,’ said Tony R Thene, Carpenter CEO. ‘It’s an exciting, yet complex process with enormous potential, and it requires extensive metallurgical expertise, in addition to quality powder products.’
