PyroGenesis has received an order from an aerospace company for the “coarse cut” metal powder between 45-150μm, developed as a by-product from the company’s production of finer powders.

“With some traditional metal powder production processes, as the powder is created then filtered and separated into different cut sizes, the fine cut powder is removed for sale, with the remaining coarsest cut often considered of limited use, or even discarded as unsuitable,” said Massimo Dattilo, VP of PyroGenesis Additive. “By selling both the fine and coarse cut of each powder production run, the company’s yield percentage from raw material is greatly enhanced.”
