Custom Alloys
Operating as a direct supplier makes us capable of offering small and production-sized custom powder batches.

How we deliver value to our customers

The quality of the material supplier has a huge influence in the benefits, companies get from Metal 3D printing. High quality parts begin with high quality material.

GKN Additive Materials helps customers from automotive, aerospace, medical and industrial markets, who require metal powders tailored for low to high volume AM processes (Binder, Laser, DED).

With our fully controlled value-added finishing process we constantly refine our superior portfolio of advanced digital powders for AM including low alloy steels, stainless steels, nickel-, copper-, aluminum-, titanium-alloy powders, and specialized novel powders.

Atomization Techniques

GKN Additive Materials provides atomized metal powder for high quality and precision AM solutions. Custom alloys are available in all processing techniques upon request.

  • Method uses low- and high-pressure water to atomize very irregular powder/ typically used for press & sinter
  • High solidification rate yielding irregular powder
  • Most suitable for less reactive metals - steel, stainless, copper
  • High scalability (several hundred thousand tons per year)
  • Higher throughput & lower cost

Materials: SS, Fe alloys

Water
  • High-pressure Inert Argon or Nitrogen for atomizing
  • Lower solidification rate yielding spherical powder
  • Most suitable for more reactive metals & alloys
  • Lower scalability (up to a few thousand tons per year)
  • Limited throughput & higher value

Materials: SS, Fe, Al, Ni alloys

Inert Gas
  • Very high purity, spherical powder
  • High-pressure Inert Argon for atomizing
  • Most suitable for reactive metals & alloys
  • Lower scalability (up to a few thousand tons per year)
  • Limited throughput & higher value

Materials: Ti, Al alloys

Electrode Induction (EIGA)
