Arcam AB has reported that the new titanium powder factory at AP&C, its metal powder manufacturing subsidiary in Montreal, Canada, is progressing well and is on plan.

With its new state-of-the-art plant, it was claimed that AP&C will be the first dedicated AM material manufacturer to have multiple production sites. The company added that the new production facility is a significant commitment to the business and growth strategies for the future.

“The need for high end titanium powder is driven by the fast growth and adoption of Additive Manufacturing. Arcam is determined to serve the industry through cost efficient solutions thus converting traditional manufacturing into Additive Manufacturing. A requisite is to offer highest quality powder for production at competitive cost and sufficient volumes,” stated Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.

Arcam also reported that AP&C recently received an order for 30 tons of titanium powder for Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) applications. This order, stated the company, also establishes AP&C as a major supplier to the MIM market. The order for Ti6Al4V MIM powder will be delivered during 2017.
