AP&C files strategic patent application
Arcam, listed on NASDAQ Stockholm, and leading supplier of Additive Manufacturing solutions, announces that its high quality metal powder manufacturing subsidiary, AP&C, based in Montreal, Canada, has filed a strategic patent application that covers high-yield production of fine powder from reactive metals with a low gas to metal ratio and low gas pressure.
AP&C uses proprietary technology for Plasma Atomization. The strategic patent application covers the use of Plasma Atomization on different heated metal sources such as wire, rod and melt. AP&C’s technology allows high yield production of fine powder for all Additive Manufacturing distributions and without ceramic contamination risk.
« The production yield is one of the key drivers to produce powder at low cost. The combination of high-yield of fine powder with a low gas to metal ratio of about 10 is unique to AP&C’s proprietary Plasma Atomization process », says Jacques Mallette, President of AP&C.
With 10 years + of experience, AP&C produces high quality and cost effective titanium and nickel super-alloy powders for additive manufacturing in a multi-reactor manufacturing set-up using product dedicated equipment.
