MTC Powder Solutions (MTC PS), Surahammar, Sweden, has announced the expansion of its Swedish facility, which includes the installation of a 1.6 x 3.5 m Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) unit, said to be the second largest HIP autoclave in the MTC family. The new HIP, installed under the company’s Project Shin expansion plans, will increase the size envelope of near net-shape HIP components that the group can produce in Europe.
“Looking back at 2020 when our journey started with acquiring Sandvik Powder Solutions, I’m pleased to see that we are now entering into the next phase of project Shin; continuing our drive in establishing MTCs footprint globally as planned,” stated Tetsuhito Hirayama, chairman of the board.
From the commencement of the acquisition, multiple investments have been implemented, each increasing efficiency and capabilities of the Swedish production sites.
Magnus Nyström, Managing Director, MTC PS, added, “I have been waiting for years to fulfil the potential we have at our fingertips here in Sweden and with the amazing support and collaboration with MTC has enabled us to make strides above and beyond all expectations and it’s exciting to see the future.”
