January 15, 2020
Atomising Systems Ltd. (ASL), Sheffield, UK, has expanded its powder production capacity through the installation of a new 400 kg gas atomiser aimed specifically at the Additive Manufacturing and Metal Injection Moulding powder markets.
An additional melter is now being installed for greater flexibility and capacity. The in-house designed atomiser, equipped with ASL’s proprietary anti-satellite and hot gas system, produces high yields of MIM and/or AM powders, enabling ASL to continue to serve its expanding AM and MIM customer base.
Paul Rose, Commercial Director, stated, “The addition of another atomiser, along with the associated sieving and classification equipment, means that we are able to keep pace with the growth of our existing client base and the requirements of new clients, especially in the AM and MIM sectors.”
Rose added, “In these sectors, the benefits of ASL’s Anti-Satellite technology are clearly recognised through the excellent powder shape and flow properties.”
