As anticipated by Vice President Massimo Dattilo in 3dpbm’s exclusive interview last November, Canadian plasma atomized powder specialist PyroGenesis is stepping up its expansion activities with the signing of a mutually exclusive agreement with Aubert & Duval, a subsidiary of the French ERAMET Group. The agreement outlines a multi-step strategy to supply plasma atomized titanium powder, on a mutually exclusive basis, to the additive manufacturing market in Europe. Through the agreement, the partners seek to establish production capabilities in the market on mutually agreeable terms.

Founded in 1907, Aubert & Duval has been a world leader in industrializing high-performance steel, superalloys, aluminum and titanium alloys for over a century. More specifically, the company is a recognized supplier of metal powders for additive manufacturing, serving the Aerospace, Energy, Transport, Medical, Defense, Automotive and other large and demanding markets.
