PyroGenesis Canada Inc, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, has announced the signing of an initial contract with an aerospace company in Spain for the supply of titanium metal powder for use in Additive Manufacturing. The un-named client is reported to be engaged in the development of advanced aeronautics technologies for the European aerospace industry.

The order is for PyroGenesis’ titanium metal powder with a particle size range of 15-63µm. The powder cut range is ideally suited for laser bed Additive Manufacturing methods, including Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB).

The order has already been produced using PyroGenesis’ NexGen plasma atomisation system and will soon be in transit to the client.

“This contract represents our initial commercial metal powder order from a European client, a significant milestone under our new direct distribution strategy. This powder is primarily utilised in laser bed applications within the Additive Manufacturing industry. We are experiencing an increase in activity from Europe and are currently engaging with additional European clients interested in acquiring our titanium powder for their Additive Manufacturing needs,” said Massimo Dattilo, Vice President of PyroGenesis Additive.

The contract was made possible as a result of recent changes to the company’s European metal powder distribution strategy, whereby the company and Aubert & Duval mutually agreed to end their distribution agreement.

“As many of our long-time investors will know, over the past several years we designed, then readied, our new NexGen plasma atomisation process with a goal to produce the highest quality metal powders in the Additive Manufacturing industry. As commercialisation progresses and initial orders are received, our strategic initiatives continue to advance as well. We are gaining valuable experience in producing powders that cater to a variety of Additive Manufacturing applications including, but not limited to, laser bed, electron beam, Binder Jetting, and direct energy deposition technologies,” stated P Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “By ending our distribution agreement with Aubert & Duval, we have essentially eliminated the middleman, thereby essentially reducing costs to the end user. As can be seen from the announcement today we are now successfully selling directly to European-based clients.”
