Los Angeles-based advanced materials science company American Elements announced the further expansion of its pure metal and metal alloy powder production facility to increase the volume and variety of powders it can make to support the burgeoning Additive Manufacturing industry. “At full capacity, the improved facility can deliver several metric tons of high-purity alloys monthly,” stated Gabriel Leis, Head of Additive Manufacturing and Rapid Prototyping at American Elements.
American Elements is the world’s largest producer of highly spherical, agglomerate free, and narrowly distributed powders for additive manufacturing. American Elements maintains an efficient production process to yield the highest quality of additive manufacturing powders at an economical price. This process has allowed American Elements to experiment with a number of exotic and custom alloys for 3D printing.
American Elements’ custom and exotic alloys are being employed in industries as varied as medical devices and aerospace components. The company’s catalog of more than 15,000 products makes it the world’s largest metals and chemicals manufacturer devoted exclusively to advanced materials in industrial bulk and laboratory/research quantities. Our development programs have been a key source for academic and corporate research and new product development for over two decades.
