AMtrinsic® Spherical Nb Powder for Additive Manufacturing

Powders with the highest degree of processability

Right in step with the latest market developments and based on our long expertise in powder metallurgy, we have developed an AMtrinsic® Spherical Nb Powder with properties required by different Additive Manufacturing Technologies. Our atomized powder is characterized by: excellent flowability, high tap density, perfectly spherical shape and narrow particle size distribution. AMtrinsic® Spherical Nb powders are pre-conditioned for application in Laser Beam Melting (10 – 63 µm), Electron Beam Melting (63 – 105 µm), Laser Metal Deposition (105 - 150 µm) or according to customer requests.

Ultra-low O content powders as a unique feature

To achieve the best properties in printed parts, high purity and low Oxygen content are essential requirements. With our unique technology, we are able to provide spherical Nb powder with O content below 600 ppm, which meets the challenging requirements of UHP and other high performance 3D printed applications.
