Sino-Euro Materials Technologies (SMT) of Xi'an Co.,Ltd is a high-tech company subordinated to the Northwest Institute For Non-ferrous Metal Research, specializing in the production of spherical metal powder.
Sino-Euro Materials Technologies (SMT) located in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, China, a producer of spherical metal powders including titanium alloys, superalloys, cobalt-chromium alloys and stainless steel, has announced it has been awarded AS9100C certification. AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardised quality management system for the aerospace industry.
GE has announced plans to acquire SLM Solutions Group AG based in Lübeck, Germany. SLM produces laser machines for metal Additive Manufacturing with customers in the aerospace, energy, healthcare and automotive industries. The announcement coincides with news that GE is also seeking a takeover of Sweden’s Arcam AB.
Titanium powder created with Ames Laboratory-developed gas-atomization technology has hit the market. Praxair Inc. now offers fine, spherical titanium powder for additive manufacturing and metal injection molding of aerospace, medical and industrial parts. It marks the first time large-scale amounts of titanium powder are available to industry with a potential for low-cost, high-volume manufacturing.
The high pressure turbine (HPT) of a modern turbofan engine must operate in an extreme environment of high temperature, high stress, and high speed. As such, it must be film cooled and designed for long life and high efficiency. The heat transfer design requires a detailed knowledge of the gas side temperatures. The low pressure turbine (LPT) is designed for very high efficiency and must be able to operate effectively behind the HPT. The requirements for both the HPT and LPT necessitate a detailed aerodynamic solution capability which accounts for the film cooling, multistage effects and variable gas properties.
The global 3D printing powder market is projected to reach USD 636.9 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 24.4% from 2015 to 2020. The growth of the market is primarily driven by the expiry of key patents for powder-based additive manufacturing in 2014 and increasing investments in research & development of powder-based technology.
