Erasteel’s Metallied facility targets high quality speciality MIM powders

June 19, 2012

With its new state-of-the art vacuum induction melt (VIM) gas atomiser, Metallied, based in Irun, Spain, and owned by Erasteel, is offering fine powders suitable for Metal Injection Moulding and other applications such as Additive Manufacturing and Laser Cladding.

The factory specialises in both standard and tailor-made alloys, available in small batches starting from 5 kg and suitable for the production of small series of metal parts or R&D activities. Javier Martinez, General Manager of the unit, commented, “We can supply a wide range of alloys with a fine powder size such as nickel superalloys, cobalt, copper, iron-base alloys and silver alloys.

Thanks to the vacuum melting facility and argon atomisation, we can process superalloys with additions of reactive metals such as titanium or aluminium.” Metallied was created in 2007 as a spin-off of the CEIT R&D Centre and was acquired in October 2011 by Erasteel, a subsidiary of the ERAMET group.   / [email protected]
