AMPERPRINT® – The Powder to Create

High-Alloyed Metal Powder Solutions for Additive Manufacturing (AM)

Since its early beginnings in rapid prototyping, curiosity about additive manufacturing has skyrocket in every single industry segment – and the 3D-printing boom continues. No wonder: Additive manufacturing opens completely new possibilities such as impressive design freedom, an improved part performance as well as shorter innovation cycles and lead times.

H.C. Starck has engineered its high-quality AMPERPRINT® metal powders specifically for the complex requirements of additive manufacturing. For optimal customer results, H.C. Starck’s state of the art AMPERPRINT® nickel, cobalt and iron based powders are fully dense, have an excellent flowability, a spherical shape and are perfectly reproducible.

Besides a broad selection of standard alloys, H.C. Starck’s portfolio encompasses various product solutions that have been tailored to customer requirements. Once the powder characteristics have been aligned to customers’ needs, H.C. Starck can produce any powder quantity, from lab scale up to medium or industrial scale production to support its clients properly through the various stages of product development.

To produce high-quality components, different additive manufacturing systems require different powder characteristics. Therefore, H.C. Starck’s powders are available in a wide range of particle size distributions covering the full range of additive manufacturing processes, including but not limited to selective laser melting, electron beam melting and laser metal deposition.
