Gas atomized powder for additive manufacturing 

Additive manufacturing is the revolution in manufacturing technology! Especially in this promising segment, we as voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl can build on our extensive materials experience and expertise in the field of powder metallurgy.


Why to buy at voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl?

Customized alloys depending on your requirements. We atomize BÖHLER standard grades, theoretical selection of 250 grades.

voestalpine BÖHLER Edelstahl leverages the metallurgical knowledge and manufacturing options of a special steel producer for this new technology.

Powder is produced on latest atomization techniques and tested in-house. Vacuum induction melting and atomization under inert gas ensure highest product quality.

Depending on the steel grade and customer requirements, raw materials molten under vacuum or remolten can be used. This ensures the highest quality standards and minimizes undesired impurities.

Depending on the requirements of the specific AM process used, we can provide the appropriate particle fraction in a range from 15-150µm.


W360 AMPO Development

Additive Manufacturing offers a multitude of advantages over conventional manufacturing methods like design freedom, shorter lead times or zero tooling costs. However, up to now there has been only a limited number of commercial alloys available for additive manufacturing.

BÖHLER W360 AMPO has been developed from W360 ISOBLOC. As no other currently available powder for additive manufacturing W360 AMPO combines high hardness, superior toughness and highest wear resistance.

In general the W360 AMPO has to be printed at elevated temperatures above 200°C due to the special alloy design.

Recommended hardness in use 52 – 57 HRc.
