PyroGenesis Canada, the world leader in the design, development, manufacture and commercialization of advanced plasma processes, is now offering through its PyroGenesis Additive division, tungsten fee metal powders to the Additive Manufacturing industry.

PyroGenesis, the inventor of plasma atomization, and known for its plasma torch expertise, has significantly improved on its original design, such that today it produces Titanium powders with no Tungsten inclusions. PyroGenesis’ quality control process thoroughly screens for any form of contamination. Tungsten-free powder is highly sought after by the aerospace and medical industries.

Pierre Carabin, Chief Technology Officer, stated: “The impact of Tungsten inclusions in a final part can have serious consequences. They can be the cause of failures. Since the melting point of Tungsten is higher than that of Titanium, it does not melt during the AM printing process. As a result, tungsten inclusions can become preferred sites for crack initiation. This has led to catastrophic failures and is clearly unacceptable, particularly in the aerospace industry.”

P. Peter Pascali, CEO & President, added: “We know of no other plasma atomization process (using DC torches) which uses tungsten free nozzles. Plasma torches with tungsten nozzles are at high risk of having tungsten inclusions in their powders. We no longer have that risk. This is a significant development in powder production. What is noteworthy is that within a few short months of having been made aware of this problem, by significant players in the industry, PyroGenesis was able to find an answer. This not only underscores PyroGenesis’ ability to quickly find solutions to complex issues, but how these solutions can lead to economically valuable alternatives, and open the door to addressing this need with potential clients.”

PyroGenesis provides engineering and manufacturing expertise, cutting-edge contract research, as well as turnkey process equipment packages to the defense, metallurgical, mining, advanced materials (including 3D printing), oil & gas, and environmental industries.

With a team of experienced engineers, scientists and technicians located in Montreal, the company leads the way in providing innovative plasma torches, plasma waste processes, high-temperature metallurgical processes, and engineering services to the global marketplace.

PyroGenesis has been nominated to the shortlist for “Materials Company of the Year” at the 3D Printing Industry Awards 2018.
