Ultra Fine Specialty Products, LLC, an affiliate of Novamet Specialty Products Corporation, has announced that its manufacturing site in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, USA, has received AS9100 certification for production and supply of gas atomised powders.

Ultra Fine’s gas atomisation process is said to produce high-purity spherical metal powders with tightly sized particle distributions (d90 <30 µm) to meet customers’ stringent specifications for Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and binder jet Additive Manufacturing (BJT). It is believed that AS9100 certification will facilitate the adoption of these processes by the aerospace industry for the production of iron-, nickel-, cobalt-, and copper-alloy parts.

Ultra Fine has launched a new website with data on standard powder products and a research section on MIM processing of alloys for aerospace, automotive, medical, chemical processing and electronics applications.

Ultra Fine and Novamet have also developed a new technique to improve the flowability of fine metal alloy powders, such as IN718, for use in powder bed fusion processes. Novamet is ISO 9001 certified.

Ultra Fine was purchased on June 30, 2020 from Carpenter Technology by a group of investors affiliated with Novamet. Novamet Specialty Products Corporation was formed in 1976 to apply technology to the development of nickel-base powders with unique morphologies, shapes, and sizes. The company currently processes and distributes various metal powders and coated products for the MIM, aerospace, automotive, coatings, and electronic materials markets.
