PyroGenesis to partner with Aubert & Duval on titanium powder supply

January 9, 2019

Aubert & Duval, Paris, France, a subsidiary of Eramet Group’s Alloys division which specialises in high-performance metallurgy, and PyroGenesis, Montreal, Canada, a provider of plasma atomised spherical metallic powders for the Additive Manufacturing and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) industries, have entered into a partnership agreement for the supply of titanium powders in Europe.

To extend its current portfolio of metal powders for the AM market, Aubert & Duval will partner with PyroGenesis to manufacture and distribute plasma atomised titanium powder, allowing the company to ensure the exclusive distribution of these powders in Europe, its primary market. Under this agreement, the new titanium offering from Aubert & Duval will be marketed under the Pearl® Micro brand.

Eramet Group’s Alloys division reported that it expects the partnership to allow Eramet to reach a 15% market share of titanium powders in Europe by 2022. The group presently produces superalloy metal powders, notably for aircraft engines and land turbines in the energy sector, as well as stainless steel powders for various markets including defence and automotive.

Jérôme Fabre, Eramet Group’s Deputy CEO in charge of the Alloys division, commented, “With our metallurgical expertise for demanding markets such as aeronautics and energy, this partnership with PyroGenesis allows us to complete our offer of metal powders for Additive Manufacturing, including 3D printing, a growing market of the industry of the future.”

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
