PyroGenesis sees approval of NexGen facility by leading aerospace company

January 25, 2023

PyroGenesis Canada, Inc., Montreal, Québec, Canada, has announced that the findings and recommendations made by a leading global aerospace company, as part of its on-site audit of PyroGenesis’s NexGen metal powder production facility, have been successfully completed and accepted.

Now that the client has approved and accepted PyroGenesis’ NexGen manufacturing process, the next and final step is to provide sample titanium metal powder from the newly approved process. The plasma atomised metal powder will be used for verification and confirmation of their chemical and mechanical properties.

“The client is a very discerning aerospace company with some of the most stringent and demanding standards. As such, we are very proud to have gained their confidence and to be moving forward to the final phase,” stated Massimo Dattilo, VP, PyroGenesis Additive. “We have methodically completed all steps in the client’s on-site quality audit, leaving only the verification of the chemical and mechanical properties of PyroGenesis’ plasma atomised metal powders as the last step.”

Having already passed this rigorous qualification process, management is reportedly of the opinion that future qualification audits from potential clients can now completed in a significantly shorter time frame. PyroGenesis Additive is currently addressing an influx of opportunities from the past year and continues to expand its team in anticipation of meeting this demand.

“We believe the difficult part is now behind us, and we are looking forward to the prospect of becoming a fully-fledged approved supplier of titanium powder to one of the largest potential clients in North America. Once an approved supplier, PyroGenesis Additive could also supply their service centres,” Dattilo concluded.
