Jiangxi Yuean Advanced Materials Co Ltd, Ganzhou City, China, has begun construction of a new Carbonyl Iron Powder (CIP) production line. The new CIP unit will have a production capacity of 6,000 metric tonnes per year, and is expected to be online by the end of 2022.
The company, which became publicly listed in August 2021, currently has eight water atomised production lines and ten gas atomised lines. Upon completion of the new CIP plant, the company will have a total CIP production capacity of over 10,000 tonnes per year.
CIP is a high purity iron powder, often selected for the uniformity of its particles, good electromagnetic performance and flowability, and its resulting high-quality end-use parts. Jiangxi Yuean supplies its CIP to a variety of fields, including Metal Injection Moulding and Powder Metallurgy and Diamond Tools.
