Puris focuses on high purity titanium and alloy powder and near net shape manufacturing

September 8, 2014

Puris, LLC, a new entity based in Hazelton, West Virginia, USA, has announced its goal of establishing a new standard for purity in titanium and alloy powder production and near-net shape manufacturing.

Puris is comprised of the assets of the former FMW Composite Systems, Inc., which emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March 2014, and Summit Materials, LLC. FMW’s assets include a 50,000 ft2 manufacturing facility and the only refractory-free gas atomisation system in the USA. Puris stated that Summit Materials brings technical sales and marketing, near-net shape capabilities and the expertise of Fred Yolton, a well-respected pioneer in titanium powder atomisation.

The company claims it will offer the cleanest powder on the market with its patent-pending technology that eliminates critical contamination risks and by employing best practices in process and material procurement. Puris will primarily support aerospace, oil and gas and medical industries.

“The launch of Puris creates an unprecedented opportunity to advance market adoption of titanium solutions,” stated Craig Kirsch, CEO of Puris. “Puris is first to market with the technical expertise, production capacity and product purity to fully commercialise titanium powder and near-net shape parts.” According to Kirsch, Puris’s key competitive advantages include industry leading production capacity and a refractory-free gas atomisation system, which sets a new standard for cleanliness.

Puris’s patent-pending atomiser is an all-titanium system that completely eliminates the risk of iron contamination during processing.
