Carpenter Technology to Produce High-Strength, Low-Oxygen Titanium AM Powder

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Carpenter Technology Corporation has begun production of CARTECH PURIS 5+™, the market’s first high-strength, low-oxygen titanium powder solution. CARTECH PURIS 5+ is Carpenter Technology’s first major powder product introduction since its acquisition of Puris, LLC earlier this year.

A custom composition of Ti-6AI-4V that meets all Grade 5 specifications, CARTECH PURIS 5+ signals a breakthrough in additive manufacturers’ ability to better control oxygen content inherent to their processes without compromising powder strength.

“Balancing oxygen levels with desired strength properties is a challenge in additive manufacturing.  CARTECH PURIS 5+ provides the simultaneous optimization of powder recyclability and strength, alleviating concerns about using low oxygen powder (to maximize powder reuse) while still exceeding standard strength requirements,” explained Michael Murtagh, Carpenter’s Chief Technology Officer. “CARTECH PURIS 5+ makes this balance easier, more efficient, and more effective from the start and throughout the titanium powder lifecycle.”

Carpenter Technology Corporation is a leading producer and distributor of premium specialty alloys, including titanium alloys, nickel and cobalt based superalloys, stainless steels, alloy steels and tool steels.  Carpenter’s high-performance materials and advanced process solutions are an integral part of critical applications used within the aerospace, transportation, medical and energy markets, among other markets.  Building on its history of innovation, Carpenter’s powder technology capabilities support a range of next-generation products and manufacturing techniques, including additive manufacturing or 3D Printing. Carpenter experts in powder metallurgy and additive manufacturing will be available at the International Paris Air Show Le Bourget 2017, held Monday, June 19 through Sunday, June 25, Hall 5, Stand E232.

“The future of aerospace hinges on advancing additive manufacturing technology,” added Tony R. Thene, Carpenter’s Chief Executive Officer. “It’s an exciting, yet complex process with enormous potential, and it requires extensive metallurgical expertise, in addition to quality powder products. Carpenter Technology is well-positioned to provide these value-added solutions to customers.”
