New METALPINE Production Site
The Art of Spherical Powder
METALPINE celebrated the opening of a state of art production site for high quality spherical metal powders for ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING applications.
METALPINE is a manufacturer of high quality metal powders and part of the internationally represented htm Group (hightech metal invest) with locations in Germany, Austria, France, Bahrain, USA, China and Japan. The overall capacity of the new site located in Graz in the southeast of Austria is 400 tons pear year. With our proprietary process, any alloy can be produced (e.g. copper alloys, steels, nickel based or titanium alloys, molybdenum, tungsten, etc.).
All materials are produced with a flexible, environmental-friendly inert-gas-process in a cleanroom environment designed for highly demanding applications such as powder bed fusion, metal injection moulding, powder deposition welding or for surface coatings.
The big advantages of the METALPINE materials are the perfectly reproducible powder quality with a narrow particle size distribution, good flowability and spherical, pore-free particles. This leads to a maximum performance of the produced part with a predictable and reliable product quality.
Besides an outstanding production infrastructure, the new Graz production site has a very good connection towards industry and university driven additive manufacturing development activities. Outstanding research on manufacturing processes, materials and AM applications are conducted with the two Styrian engineering universities, University of Leoben and Technical University Graz.
The inauguration was a successful event being celebrated safely before the outbreak of the corona pandemic situation in Austria with representatives form industry, research and politics.
