PyroGenesis Canada Inc., Montreal, Canada, has completed the construction of its new facility for the production of metal powders for Additive Manufacturing. The facility houses a new plasma-based atomisation unit, inventory storage and logistics operations and will be dedicated to the production of plasma atomised Ti-6Al-4V powders, primarily targeting the aerospace and biomedical industries.

Massimo Dattilo, Vice President of PyroGenesis Additive, stated, “We are very excited about having completed this milestone. It puts PyroGenesis squarely on the map as a quality supplier of Ti-6Al-4V powder for the AM industry. In parallel, we are also investigating other materials which can be produced with our other reactors, currently in our main facility.”

“This next logical step of incorporating some of the previously announced improvements into a cutting-edge facility is now complete,” added P Peter Pascali, President and CEO of PyroGenesis. “After investing over $2.5 million into this facility, all that remains is to incorporate post-treatment equipment for it to be a stand-alone facility.”

The new facility is ISO 9001:2015 certified and is expected to be AS9100D (aviation, space and defence) certified by the end of 2018. Upon receipt, PyroGenesis will then pursue ISO 13485 for the production of medical devices.
