Atomising Systems Ltd. (ASL), Sheffield, UK, has selected Steward Advanced Materials LLC (SAM), Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA, to represent and distribute its gas and water atomised powders in the USA and Americas.

ASL’s gas atomised powders are used in many diverse fields including MIM, Additive Manufacturing, brazing, and thermal spray. The company’s antisatellite system and hot gas technology reportedly allow the production of free-flowing spherical gas atomised powders with median particle sizes from less than 10 microns up to 250 microns. As well as the more standard types, ASL produces many bespoke stainless steel grades, along with various nickel and cobalt-based alloys.

The company’s high-pressure water atomisers are capable of producing spherical and nonspherical powders with D50’s < 10µm to > 500µm. ASL is producing a range of powders for PM, filter applications and other industry sectors. Also available is a versatile water atomising system with a 30 kg batch size which produces powder for dental, precious metal and specialised trial production lots.

Steward Advanced Materials LLC. was founded in 2002 as a division of Steward, Inc., a company which has been family-owned for 130 years. It provides highly engineered speciality metallic and ceramic materials for the global energy, industrial and consumer markets. According to ASL, it expects that SAM will be an ideal partner for the company and its portfolio of stainless steel and alloyed powders.
