Sandvik says that it has installed two new atomization plants in Neath, UK.
This follows a recent investment in a new plant for the manufacturing of titanium and nickel-based alloys for additive manufacturing (AM), in Sandviken, Sweden, the company said.
The UK powder manufacturing facility is reportedly certified to AS9100D, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, ISO 50001, and ISO 9001, while the Sandviken plant is ISO 13485 certified for medical applications.
‘By installing these new atomization towers – one of which is already fully operational and quality assured, while the other is under construction – we bring our total tower count to twelve, and thereby significantly increase our ability to produce even larger quantities of premium metal powders,’ said Annika Roos, manager of Sandvik’s metal powder business.
