Arcam, a supplier of additive-manufacturing equipment based in Sweden, announced that its subsidiary AP&C of Montreal will add capacity by building a new powder manufacturing plant. The facility will provide manufacturing redundancy, short-term capacity increase and long-term expansion capability. The capacity increase is in response to a surge in demand for AP&C’s titanium powders for additive manufacturing. AP&C’s plasma technology converts efficiently raw material to powder with key properties such as flowability, density, chemistry and traceability. When the plant is completed, atomizing capacity will be at least 750 tons per year.
