Metal powder for Additive Manufacturing applications and components

    POWDER DEVELOPMENT

    Our Additive Manufacturing metal powders are developed and manufactured by the global steel market leaders BÖHLER and UDDEHOLM in dedicated powder manufacturing plants in Kapfenberg (Austria) and Hagfors (Sweden).

    Drawing on our long history of producing high quality alloy steels for the Aerospace, Oil & Gas, and Automotive industries, we ensure our AM powders are manufactured to the highest quality standards and designed perform at the highest levels of performance.

    We do more than just produce AM powders.  Our test laboratories design our powders specifically for 3D printing at our voestalpine Additive Manufacturing Centers and for use by our customers in a range of OEM printing systems.

     

    POWDER PRODUCTION

    Our Additive Manufacturing metal powders are produced from the highest quality raw materials produced in our own European steel mills, ensuring full traceability through the manufacturing process.

    Our powders are produced using latest vacuum induction melting and atomization techniques, with analysis and testing performed in-house at our state of the art metallurgical laboratories.

     

    POWDER PORTFOLIO

    Our material portfolio goes beyond standard material grades commonly used in Additive Manufacturing applications.  We develop dedicated high performance steel and nickel alloy materials for use in specific industry applications such as High Pressure Die Casting and Plastic Injection Molding.

    All of our AM powders are available in particle size ranges to suit both Laser Powder Bed (15-45μm) and Laser Powder Deposition (45-90μm) technologies.
