Arcam AB has announced that its metal powder subsidiary AP&C, based in Montreal, Canada, is building its fourth and fifth reactors, adding significant capacity to its titanium and nickel superalloy powder manufacturing operation.

AP&C uses proprietary plasma atomisation technology to produce highly spherical powders of reactive and high melting point materials such as titanium, nickel, zirconium, molybdenum, niobium, tantalum, tungsten and their alloys. Its powders are suited to a range of processes such as Additive Manufacturing, Metal Injection Moulding, Hot Isostatic Pressing and coating applications.

“With this new generation of atomizing technology, AP&C is now in a position to supply aerospace and medical part manufacturers’ titanium powders in volumes needed today and in the future. With a multiple reactor operation, AP&C can produce its standard products on dedicated reactors and equipment, therefore eliminating cross-contamination risks,” stated Jacques Mallette, President of AP&C.
