An innovative startup based in northern Italy and active in the production of metal powders is looking for partners in the field of additive manufacturing or other powder metallurgy sectors, The company is looking to establish a research cooperation agreement.
Italian startup active in the production of metal powders offers its expertise to develop innovative projects in the field of additive manufacturing.
The materials the company is able to atomize at the moment are iron, nichel, cobalt and copper base alloys. Powders are perfectly spherical and they can assure no impurities and low oxygen content due to VIGA (Vacuum Induction Melting + Inert Gas atomization) technology. The atomizing plant, post processing equipment and laboratory instruments make possible a great flexibility in terms of chemical analysis, granulometric distribution, batch size. The dimension of the VIGA is suitable both for semi-pilot production and industrial volumes. The company has an internal R&D department and has already developed a network of contacts with external laboratories, R&D centers, universities, service centers, companies using additive manufacturing for prototyping and production.
The company offers its expertise and is looking in particular to join groups that are already working on new products and/or process developments. The possible application fields for the company's powders are mainly additive manufacturing, both selective laser melting (SLM) and electron beam melting (EBM) powder bed techniques and direct energy deposition and also other historical Powder Mertallurgy processes as welding, coating, HIPping, sintering.
In particular, the company would be able to develop new alloys and produce spherical powders with tailor made PSD (particle size distribution).
The company is looking for partners in the development of innovative projects under a research cooperation agreement. The company is also interested in establishing a possible partnership to submit a proposal for a H2020 call.
The company is characterized by a dominant innovation trait in terms of plants, materials and processes.
It can offer to other partners:
- High quality metal powders
- Flexibility in terms of alloys, properties and volumes
- R&D competencies on alloy design, powder production and applications
- Complete laboratory (chemical + microscopy + particle size distribution - PSD + advanced characterization of powder properties)
The ideal partner is a company, user of metal powders which is developing innovative projects in the field of additive manufacturing or other application fields.
The company seeks a partner with the equipment necessary to process powders producing parts in order to evaluate properties of powders in terms of processability and final requirements of the obtained components. The company is looking for a research cooperation agreement.
The startup is a spin-off from a multinational industry with over 50 years of experience in the manufacturing sector, created in order to develop an ambitious project on metal powder production.
The company has applied for the following certifications (to be completed): ISO 9001 – AS 9100 - ISO 13485 - ISO 17025
