Ten years of innovation in metal powder atomisation at Arcast

January 6, 2021

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic having a major impact on global markets in 2020, it is no surprise that many in the Powder Metallurgy sector, from parts producers to powder makers, have had to cut back and adjust their operations in the face of reduced demand. There are a number of businesses, however, that have been fortunate, and have managed to buck this trend.

After being in business for just over ten years, Arcast Inc., Oxford, Maine, USA, is one such company; currently, it is having one of its busiest years on record, with sales volumes and revenues reported to be higher than ever. Inevitably, some COVID-related difficulties have impacted production, but the company has been able to adjust for these and keep its head well above water.

Arcast, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2020, designs and supplies a range of atomising systems to a diverse customer base across the globe. Having become a leader early on in compact, laboratory-sized systems, the company now offers a range of technology, including large-scale, custom-built atomisers.

In the Winter 2020 issue of PM Review (Vol. 9 No. 4), we look at how the company has advanced over the last ten years, the key technology it has developed, and what the future holds as it continues to offer metal powder atomisation solutions to a wider marketplace.

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.
