Numanova Srl established to manufacture range of metal powders

January 26, 2016

Italian investment group Italeaf has announced it has established Numanova Srl to produce metal powders suited to a range of Additive Manufacturing and Powder Metallurgy applications. The production plant will be located at Italeaf’s facility in Nera Montoro, near Rome, and the company plans to have operating offices in Milan, London and Hong Kong.

Numanova states it will be active in the production of high-quality metal powders for Additive Manufacturing (3D printing), Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP). The metal powders will be suited to advanced uses in areas such as aerospace, energy, mechanical and biomedical.

Investment of some €12 million has been announced and the company will be equipped with advanced gas atomised metal powder production technology. It will also use plasma atomisation technologies and total production capacity is expected to be around 500 tons/year of metal powders.

“The production of metal powders and the research and development activity to make new alloys are attracting interest and growing expectations on the global market,” stated Paolo Folgarait, Numanova’s Executive Director and General Manager. “The versatility of the techniques of Powder Metallurgy can help to create complex and innovative metallic materials (and ceramic) and introduce new forms of production in advanced sectors with high added value.”

Numanova added that it has concluded a number of framework agreements for business collaboration and technical-scientific cooperation with metal Additive Manufacturing systems providers and companies operating in the metallurgical sector. It has also signed agreements with national and international universities and research centres.
