Aubert & Duval, a subsidiary of the High Performance Alloys Division of the Eramet Group based in Paris, France, is celebrating ten years as a supplier of metal powders to the Additive Manufacturing industry. Its powder range covers nickel- and cobalt-base alloys and steels produced via a gas atomisation method with argon or nitrogen, with VIM (Vacuum Induction Melting).

The company’s Pearl® micro metals are intended for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB), Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED). These powders are reported to feature highly spherical morphology, fully controlled low oxygen & carbon levels, no satellites or internal porosities, as well as high levels of cleanliness, stability and reproducibility. Customised compositions and speciality alloys, as well as tailored particle size distributions, are available upon request.

Thus far, Aubert & Duval’s powders have served markets such as aerospace (for which its factory has EN9100 accreditation), energy, medical, defence and automotive.

The company will mark its anniversary during Formnext 2021, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, November 16–19.
