PREP powder production unit for additive manufacturing

Technical features of PREP unit:
● Modern drive allows rotation of the sprayed feedstock at a speed of 40,000 rpm enabling a larger yield of fine powders for AM;
● Advanced system for cleaning and cooling the gas;
● Advanced plasmatron with improved power source for increased efficiency, stability and productivity of the working process, and higher quality of produced powders;
● Digital control system to modify production parameters per user’s specific needs.

PREP advantages vs Gas Atomizing:

  • Greater sphericity
  • Satellites-free
  • No gas porosity
  • Better flowability
  • 100 times less inert gas consumption
  • Bigger portion of fraction for additive manufacturing:
  • Titanium alloys:
  • Fraction size -80+63 – 43%
  • Fraction size -63+40 μm – 37%
  • Nickel Alloys:
  • Less than 63 μm - 90%
