Titanium powder for additive manufacturing

December 03, 2017 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
GKN Hoeganes Specialty Metal Powders has added a high strength, heat treatable, metastable beta titanium alloy to its portfolio of AncorAM powders for additive manufacturing. AncorTi Beta 21S is designed with the purpose of improving resistance to oxidation and creep, along with enhanced strength and stability in elevated temperatures. This range of properties makes the alloy a perfect candidate to manufacture parts for aerospace, medical, chemical and marine applications.

AncorAM metal powders are produced on full production scale processing equipment and have been engineered with alloy chemistry and powder characteristics specifically designed for additive manufacturing, focusing on final product consistency. AncorTi Beta 21S joins AncorTi CP and AncorTi 6Al4V as well as a host of nickel and ferrous based powder in the AncorAM product line. GKN Additive continues to develop new powder alloys for additive manufacturing, including advanced titanium powders, specialized nickel-based alloys, and nickel-titanium powders engineered for use in advanced medical devices.

Beta 21S is available in particle sizes optimized for Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) AM machines.
