PM powder supplier PyroGenesis Canada says that it has shipped its first commercial samples of NexGen plasma atomized titanium powder to a customer in the aerospace industry.

‘This shipment represents the first of many expected shipments of PyroGenesis’ titanium powder,’ said Massimo Dattilo, vice president of PyroGenesis Additive. ‘We are now in a position to fulfill the backlog of demand for our powders and we anticipate that these shipments will lead to further qualification steps and/or commercial orders. […] the NexGen powder production process has resonance beyond titanium alloys, and we are eager to begin addressing these markets as well.’

According to the company, the NexGen production line offers lower CAPEX and OPEX and provides a narrower particle size distribution.
