Hoeganaes Corporation, based in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, USA, has launched AncorAM™, a new product line of metal powders engineered for Additive Manufacturing. The first offering in this series includes AncorTi™ titanium powder. Available in Ti6Al4V alloy and commercially pure grades, AncorTi is a spherical powder for applications in Additive Manufacturing, Metal Injection Moulding and Hot Isostatic Pressing.

Ti6Al4V alloys exhibit a high strength to weight ratio with excellent corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. This range of properties makes the alloy a perfect candidate to manufacture parts for aerospace, medical, chemical and marine applications. AncorTi is available in particle sizes optimised for Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) manufacturing.

“As a new technology, Additive Manufacturing requires a supplier whose knowledge base is exceptional in metal powder manufacturing, has a true understanding of metal powder properties suitable for the AM processes and a history of meeting exacting requirements for quality, supply, and certification of PM materials,” stated Richard Kallee, Director of Business Development for Powder and AM at Hoeganaes Corporation. “Hoeganaes has put the resources in place to become a long-term market leader in this emerging sector.”

Hoeganaes has taken this step into the AM market in conjunction with a multi-million dollar expansion of its Innovation Center in Cinnaminson. Additions to the research and development facility include a new Advanced PM Machining Lab and 3D printer. Chief among the technological upgrades is a pilot atomising facility dedicated to the development of AM powders and scalable production of advanced metal powders.

A leader in the development and production of ferrous powders primarily for automotive and industrial applications, Hoeganaes stated that its investment in new AM technology provides the basis for long-term growth in new arenas, including the aerospace and medical industries.

For over 65 years Hoeganaes has been a major part of the global landscape in conventional Powder Metallurgy. The company is a leading contributor to the approximately one million metric tons of iron powder used to produce press-and-sinter parts worldwide.

Hoeganaes is already collaborating with new customers to supply AncorTi for aerospace applications using Additive Manufacturing. For more information on AncorAM solutions, contact Paul Taylor, [email protected].
