H C Starck invests in powder processing technology

May 18, 2016

H C Starck has announced it has invested in state-of-the-art processing capabilities to manufacture specialised refractory metal powders for Additive Manufacturing. The company’s Fabricated Products Division (FPR) now offers spheroidised refractory metal powders with tailored chemistry and particle size distribution.

“H C Starck is excited to offer its refractory metal powders to the rapidly growing Additive Manufacturing industry. This presents an opportunity for us to expand our core competencies in refractory metals and alloys beyond traditional manufacturing operations used in the fabrication of our products,” stated Dmitry Shashkov, Member of H C Starck’s Executive Board and Head of the Fabricated Products Division.

“As a leading global supplier of high performance technology metals, H C Starck now offers spherical powders as a natural extension of our vertically integrated fabricated products business. Investment in new processing technology enables us to help our customers meet their unique and demanding challenges in Additive Manufacturing. We are working with customers in several industries, including medical and industrial imaging, nuclear and thermo-nuclear energy, and various aerospace related components, where we are global players.”

H C Starck’s new powder products are engineered for enhanced processability and product performance when utilised with popular Additive Manufacturing techniques such as binder jet, directed energy deposition and powder bed fusion. It is claimed that the inherent spherical shape of H C Starck‘s powders results in improved flowability and high apparent density, while meeting the stringent purity level demanded by customer and application needs.
