AP&C files strategic patent application

Arcam, listed on NASDAQ Stockholm, and leading supplier of Additive Manufacturing solutions, announces that its high quality metal powder manufacturing subsidiary, AP&C, based in Montreal, Canada, has filed a strategic patent application that covers high-yield production of fine powder from reactive metals with a low gas to metal ratio and low gas pressure.

AP&C uses proprietary technology for Plasma Atomization. The strategic patent application covers the use of Plasma Atomization on different heated metal sources such as wire, rod and melt. AP&C’s technology allows high yield production of fine powder for all Additive Manufacturing distributions and without ceramic contamination risk.

“The production yield is one of the key drivers to produce powder at low cost. The combination of high-yield of fine powder with a low gas to metal ratio of about 10 is unique to AP&C’s proprietary Plasma Atomization process”, says Jacques Mallette, President of AP&C.

With 10 years+ of experience, AP&C produces high quality and cost effective titanium and nickel super alloy powders for additive manufacturing on a multi-reactor platform using product dedicated equipment.
