AT&M to expand MIM powder production

February 12, 2013

The Powder Metallurgy Division of Advanced Technology & Materials Ltd (AT&M) based in Beijing told Powder Injection Moulding International at the PM2012 Powder Metallurgy World Congress, Yokohama, October 14-18, that it will increase production of ultra-fine low alloy steel, stainless steel, and other grades of metal powders from its current capacity of 1500 tonnes/year to 4000 tonnes/year in order to support the strong growth of the global MIM industry.

The company has already invested more than $5 million since 2003 to increase capacity in its high pressure (1000 bar) water atomisation plant to produce spherical, ultra-fine powders, and also in the vacuum gas and combined water/gas atomisation plants used to produce low oxygen, high purity powders.
