PyroGenesis Canada develops, manufactures and markets advanced plasma processes and high-quality plasma-atomized metal powders for 3D printing. The company has received an order – and a deposit – for five tons (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 Company 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 anonymous customer is an advanced materials company based in the U.S., independent of the previous aerospace customer. In addition, there is a tentative agreement for an additional 6 tons, depending on the customer’s needs.
“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. “As mentioned in our previous releases, 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.”
The order will be processed at PyroGenesis’ state-of-the-art production facility in Montreal, Canada. The delivery of 5 tons of titanium metal powder will mainly take place in the second quarter of 2023, with the remainder by the end of the third quarter of 2023.
The company’s high-quality titanium metal powder is part of its three-tier ecosystem that optimizes raw material security and improves the availability of critical minerals, such as titanium, which is classified as critical by the Canadian government.
