PyroGenesis Canada says that a global aerospace customer is now ready to conduct an in-person powder production audit at its metal powder production facility in Montreal, Canada.

This follows “months of document review and process improvements”, said P Peter Pascali, CEO of PyroGenesis. “In our opinion, this is one of the most important and critical steps in our powder production qualification.”

According to the company, the audit is part of the final phase of the qualification process. If successfully completed, Pyrogenesis can provide final powder samples to test specific mechanical and chemical properties. Plans are for final approval to be achieved at the end of 2022.
