GKN Hoeganaes Specialty Metal Powders has added AncorTi™ Beta 21S to its portfolio of AncorAM™ powders for additive manufacturing. Beta 21S titanium (UNS R58210) is a high strength, heat treatable, metastable beta titanium alloy. It is designed with the purpose of improving resistance to oxidation and creep, along with enhanced strength and stability in elevated temperatures. This range of properties makes the alloy a perfect candidate to manufacture parts for aerospace, medical, chemical and marine applications. AncorTi™ Beta 21S is available in particle sizes optimized for Electron Beam Melting (EBM) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) AM machines.
AncorAM™ metal powders are produced on full production scale processing equipment and have been engineered with alloy chemistry and powder characteristics specifically designed for additive manufacturing, focusing on final product consistency. AncorTi™ Beta 21S joins AncorTi™ CP and AncorTi™ 6Al4V as well as a host of nickel and ferrous based powder in the AncorAM™ product line.
