AU series / AC series | Plants for metal powder production
Our success proves us right – we are expanding now our portfolio of powder production systems
In addition to the existing Gas Atomizer Solutions, we will launch two new types of Atomization Machinery in early 2021. We have developed Water Atomizer and Ultra-Sonic Atomizer Solutions to enlarge our machine portfolio to meet basically all requirements on different powder properties and applications.
Blue Power is a leading manufacturer of plants for the production of metal powders in small to medium size batches. Our atomizers and air classifiers are covering the entire process from powder production to classification. Now we enlarge our portfolio with new Ultrasonic Atomization and Water Atomization solutions.
More about Plants for metal powder production:
Powder particle size for every request
The BLUE POWER atomisation plants have been particularly designed for the flexible and economic production of small-scale metal powder batches. Traditional large-scale production plants cannot provide this economic advantage. Frequently changing alloys in production require high cleaning efforts to avoid cross contamination. Particularly in R&D or precious metal powder applications small amounts of various kinds of powder are frequently required, often also new types of alloy powder not available on the market. Especially fast developing applications like SLM and MIM require more and more specialised metal powder.
High quality metal powders
Our atomisers produce spherical, flowable metal powders with mean particle sizes between ~1 and 200 µm for e.g. additive manufacturing, soldering or foam sintering processes, as well as MIM and other powder metallurgy procedures. To obtain specific metal powder characteristics, the AU machines work with different easy-to-change nozzle systems: free fall and close coupled atomisation nozzles. Flow optimisation in the spray chamber ensures an increased powder quality (avoidance of satellites). More about Gas Atomizers AUG 1000 – AUG 28000
While the Gas as well as Ultra-Sonic Atomiser Solutions are designed for the production of spherical powders by avoiding any contact to fast quenching media during particle formation, water atomised powder typically have a more irregular shape which is an advantage for some applications like recycling/refining process, press & sinter process and others.
However, it is also possible to produce almost spherical, fine powder by water atomisation with appropriate process parameters, which makes the powder potentially suitable for AM applications. More about Water Atomizer AUW 1000 – COMING SOON!
For easy and reliable separation of metal powders: the Air Classifier AC 1000
The ‚Air Classifier‘ AC1000 allows the economical and flexible classification of small powder batches. It is suitable for the separation of metal powders < ca. 200 µm into fine and coarse powder fractions especially also in the range < 25 µm, where conventional sieving operations fail.
