Quebec’s PyroGenesis Canada Inc. has received a signed order for 5,000 kg, of its plasma atomized titanium metal powders for 3D printing.
“This order for 5,000 kg is the first ‘By-The-Tonne’ commercial order received by the PyroGenesis for its atomized powder titanium metal powders produced using the company’s NexGen plasma atomization system,” said Massimo Dattilo, VP, PyroGenesis Additive. “This represents our full entrance into the titanium metal powders marketplace.”
The client (whose name is being withheld at its request) is an advanced materials company in the United States. (This client is unrelated to the global aerospace OEM client for which the Company continues the qualification process to become an approved supplier.)
Additionally, this new client has placed a provisional order for a further six tonnes (or 6,000 kilograms), contingent upon the client determining the appropriate demand for additional powders.
“With a goal to produce the highest quality metal powders in the additive manufacturing industry, PyroGenesis Additive has taken a cautious, methodical approach towards commercialization of its powders as we designed, then readied, our new NexGen plasma atomization process,” continued Mr. Dattilo. “We started with sample batches for key customers measured in dozens of grams, then progressed to small commercial orders of 100kg each, with the stated goal to then move up to commercial production and sales “By-The-Tonne”. This has now been achieved with this multi tonne order.”
This order will be completed at PyroGenesis’ production facility in Montreal, Quebec. The majority of the initial titanium metal powder order will be shipped during the second quarter of 2023, with the balance of the order set for completion before the end of the third quarter 2023.
