Specialty Metal Powders to be showcased at PM20 International Conference on Powder Metallurgy

Meet the team at Booth 9

AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP) will be exhibiting it’s range of high-performance metal powders produced from its world class facility in Eighty Four, PA, USA including atomized stainless-steel powders at the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials. The event is being hosted by the Powder Metallurgy Association of India (PMAI) and takes place from 19 to 21 February 2020 in Mumbai, India.

AMETEK SMP Eighty Four will be joined at Booth 9 by fellow specialty metals business, Reading Alloys, who will be presenting their range of high-purity titanium powders and master alloys. The powders from these two businesses are used by customers in mission critical applications around the world from diverse sectors, including automotive, industrial, agriculture, aerospace and medical.

Jatin Kumar Tanwar, AMETEK SMP’s National Sales Manager for India and the Middle East says of the event: “We are looking forward hugely to exhibiting our high-performance powders at this prestigious PMAI event in Mumbai. Our products are custom-made to each customer’s specification and we take pride in their top-quality performance.”

Advanced metal powders are manufactured through water atomization and used in various applications including Powder Metallurgy (P/M), Metal Injection Molding (MIM), chemical filtration, thermal spray and polyester spinning. They are engineered for critical applications where high temperature and corrosion resistance are imperative. The powders are produced in a range of alloys, including austenitic and ferritic stainless-steel of varying grades, as well as alloys based on nickel, copper, cobalt and custom alloys.

The titanium powders produced by Reading Alloys include Ti Sponge, CP Ti and Ti 6AL-4VA. They are all custom-made using a hydride-dehydride (HDH) process. Applications for the various titanium powders include biocompatible orthopedic implant coatings, high tech electronics and thermal spray.

The International Conference on Powder Metallurgy and Particulate Materials runs alongside an exhibition made up of key manufacturers, suppliers and opinion leaders in the field of global metallurgy.
