The additive manufacturing process is defined as the forming process of a part by adding material through stacking successive layers. It is applied in a number of fields, like: aerospace and aviation, chemical, nuclear, medical, weapons and military.
This technology requires materials with high sphericity, with specific grain size features. The high level of solubility and the maximum density are key factors to secure the shape of the powder and the optimal density of the piece.
In this context, Tekna’s spherical Ti64 titanium alloy powder, Tungsten Carbide powder, Tantalum powder and Molybdenum powder as well as Tekna’s Spheroidization equipment perfectly meet the needs of industries using additive manufacturing while meeting the most demanding standards.
The capacity for industrial production makes Tekna the partner of choice for this application. The controlled grain size, high sphericity as well as the high level of purity are suitable for manufacturing parts with optimal density.
