Both organizations are keenly focused on sustainable additive manufacturing.

“Our partnership with 6K Additive is beneficial for Seurat on several fronts,” said Ben Fotovvati, Additive Manufacturing Process Engineer at Seurat Technologies. “Not only are we partnering with a supplier that can meet our powder quality requirements, but we are also teaming with a leader in sustainably sourced materials, which aligns perfectly with our decarbonization mission.”

6K Additive is the world’s first producer of AM powder made from sustainable sources and offers a full suite of premium powder, including nickel, titanium, copper, stainless steel, aluminum alloys, and refractory metals such as tungsten, niobium, and rhenium. Its proprietary UniMelt system is the world’s only microwave production-scale plasma system, with a highly uniform and precise plasma zone, zero contamination, superior performance compared to atomization technologies, and high throughput production capabilities. 

Powered by 100% green energy, Seurat is reinventing and reshoring manufacturing with its Area Printing technology developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. This 3D metal printing technology delivers high-precision, high-volume, decarbonized manufacturing, which Seurat anticipates can directly mitigate as much as 100 million tons of CO2 by 2030.

“Customers now have a very compelling reason to work with Seurat for part production, powered by the world’s most sustainably sourced powder from 6K Additive,” said Nick Pflugh, chief commercial officer for 6K Additive.
