Plasma atomization process

The Plasma Atomization Technology initially went into commercial production in 1998 to enable the production of fine particle distribution of high purity reactive metal powder such as titanium.

Plasma Atomization produces premium quality spherical powders of reactive and high melting point materials such as titanium, nickel, zirconium, molybdenum, niobium, tantalum, tungsten and their alloys. Plasma Atomization offers the highest purity possible with the highly spherical particles and minimal satellites content. Plasma atomized powder thus exhibits exceptional flowability and packing properties. They are extensively used in additive manufacturing (AM), metal injection molding (MIM), hot and cold isostatic pressing (HIP & CIP) and thermal and cold spray coatings.


Plasma Atomization can produce powders of particle size distribution (PSD) ranging from 0 to 250 µm. The typical PSD available are 0-25 µm, 0-45 µm, 10-45 µm, 15-45 µm, 25-45 µm, 45-106 µm, 45-150 µm, 0-250 µm.
