Global Advanced Metals (GAM) is a world leading, vertically integrated and conflict-free provider of tantalum metallurgical products and tantalum powder for high performance applications like capacitors and additive manufacturing. GAM offers feed materials for AM in spherical powder, angular powder, Nano powder and wire forms. Spherical and angular powders have excellent flow, low oxygen, up to 6N purity and are fully dense. Nano powders are ultra-high purity and can be a wide variety of alloys.
GAM is supplying tantalum powder for MIM, Laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF), Electron beam (EBM) and Direct energy deposition (DED) printing. Tantalum wire is also available for DED. The 10-38 micron spherical powder has been laser printed into parts that could be used in medical, nuclear, aerospace, electronics and military applications and will be displayed at RAPID+TCT 2019, booth 752. The density of printed parts has achieved 99.7% without heat treatment. The gas and impurity levels for these powders can be customized.
