Righton Blackburns Powder Metals Feature in ‘All Things Additive’

Andy Gauler, Powder Metals Development Manager recently sat down with All Things Additive to discuss our exclusive partnership with Liberty Powder Metals, which saw us become the sole UK and Ireland distributor of their premium metal powders and alloys that enable 3D printing of precision components.

In the article, Andy explains the reasoning behind our entry into the metal powder market and how our collaboration with Liberty Powder Metals means that we are swiftly becoming a crucial part of the cutting-edge additive manufacturing industry, particularly for our key aerospace, defence, medical and automotive sectors.

As Andy says in the article:

Our entry into the additive powder market was the next logical step in our company's 100 years plus history and further reinforces our position as the United Kingdom's leading supplier of both safety-critical and commercial metallic materials,

We believe that in Liberty Powder Metals, we have collaborated with the very best manufacturer who possesses a state-of-the-art atomiser, equipped with an anti-satellite system. This allows the production of highly spherical powders with very few satellites, enabling the powder to exhibit greatly improved flowability and packing characteristics when compared to standard gas-atomised powders.

Leading-edge service will always be at the centre of everything we do. We see ever increasing demand for these materials in the industry so from our perspective - the only way is up
