Additive powders

AP&C's powders are highly spherical, low in porosity, and contain minimal satellites offering exceptional flow and packing density. It's our mission to provide a secure supply chain of high-quality powder and to participate in the advancements of our customers’ additive manufacturing journey to build competitive and innovative parts.

“Everything about my job is innovative and that’s what keeps me motivated,” explained Amélie Lorenzi-Mercier. Two years out of university, she is at the forefront of the research and development of additive metal powders. Before she joined AP&C through an internship, the additive industry wasn’t on her radar.

Powder Pioneer: Jean-François Archambault, senior laboratory expert, AP&C

The use of metal powders in additive manufacturing processes continues to grow rapidly and the powders used are tested to a high degree of quality, so that they are compliant with the requirements of the powder user.

Powder Pioneer: Rachel Riendeau, quality leader, AP&C

Metal powders used in additive manufacturing are not subjected to the same certifications as finished end-use additively manufacturing parts. So, other approaches must be taken to ensure that they are of a high quality.
