H.C. Starck Tantalum and Niobium introduces AMtrinsic metal powder range for Additive Manufacturing

H.C. Starck Tantalum and Niobium GmbH, Goslar, Germany has
launched a new range of atomised tantalum and niobium powders and their alloys
designed specifically for metal Additive Manufacturing processes. Under the
brand name AMtrinsic®, the new powders are suitable for a wide range of
demanding applications.

Tantalum and niobium, as well as alloys containing these
elements, offer a unique set of properties including high melting point, high
corrosion resistance, excellent chemical resistance and high thermal and
electrical conductivity. This makes them ideal for high-tech applications in
fields such as chemical processing, superconductors, energy and
high-temperature environments. 

In addition, parts additively manufactured from Ta/Nb
containing alloys may offer an alternative for the optimisation of mechanical
and biological performance parameters in medical implants. Multinary alloy
compositions or high-entropy alloys containing Ta/Nb are said to be especially
of interest for the design of completely new intrinsic material properties that
can provide superior solutions in challenging applications, especially when
combined with the freedom of geometric design available using AM.

“We see the introduction of our new Additive Manufacturing
brand AMtrinsic as an important milestone in our new business development
activities which should strengthen our position in the continuously growing AM
market,” stated Melanie Stenzel, Head of Marketing and New Business
