Your benefits at a glance:

  • Atomization of BÖHLER standard brands (theoretical selection from 250 steel brands). Customization of alloys with small scale production plant and metallurgical expertise.
  • BÖHLER Edelstahl leverages the metallurgical knowledge and manufacturing options of a special steel producer for this new technology.
  • Powder is produced on latest atomization techniques and tested in-house.
  • Vacuum induction melting and atomization under inert gas ensure the highest product quality.
  • Depending on the steel grade and customer requirements, raw-materials molten under vacuum or remolten can be used. This ensures the highest quality standards and minimizes undesired impurities.
  • Depending on the requirements of the AM process used, we can provide the appropriate particle fraction in a range from 15-150μm.
  • Properties such as flowability, particle size distribution, and bulk density are ascertained upon request and included in delivery.
