6K Additive has developed titanium powder with oxygen between 500–700 parts per million for additive manufacturing (AM).

According to the company, the low oxygen “stays within printable specification” for longer and can help reduce the costs of titanium parts.

“Our ability to provide low-oxygen titanium at production volumes enables our customer to stretch their powder use well beyond what’s available today, essentially increasing value and lowering costs for their Ti64 parts,” said Frank Roberts, president of 6K Additive.

6K Additive also makes Ni718, Ni625, stainless steel 316/17-4, copper 18150, GRCOP powders and refractory metal such as tungsten, tantalum, and rhenium.
