VIM Gas atomization

Pearl® fine powder atomization


VIM Gas powder atomization process Legend

VIM Gas atomization technology

During VIM gas atomization of Pearl®Micro metal fine powders, the melting is done under vacuum induction melting. This process is required for alloys with reactive elements such as Titanium or Aluminum or to achieve a high cleanliness level.


A state-of-the art gas atomization process

  • Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM)
  • Gaz atomization with Nitrogen or Argon
  • Highly spherical powders
  • High stability and reproducibility
  • High cleanliness level
  • Fully controlled or low oxygen and carbon levels
  • Less satellites & internal porosities

Pear® Micro metal for additive manufacturing.
