LIBERTY Powder Metals, the UK’s newest and unique producer of premium metal powders and alloys, has earned critical quality certifications that will enable the business to expand its reach in additive manufacturing and sell to customers across the aerospace, automotive, and industrial and engineering sectors.
The company’s atomiser, which opened last December at the Materials Processing Institute on Teesside, produces a range of premium stainless steel and nickel superalloy powders that enable 3D printing of precision components in a market already worth more than £2bn a year.
LIBERTY Powder Metals has been awarded two quality certifications. EN 9100 is the internationally recognised Quality Management System for the aerospace industry while ISO 9001 is the equivalent system for general industry.
The certifications, which were awarded after extensive and rigorous audits of LIBERTY Powder Metals’ quality management system and internal operations, covers the manufacture, processing and testing of metallic alloy powders for near net shape and additive manufacturing applications.
