6K Additive enables you to think beyond today. If today you are printing with materials like Inconel 718 or Ti 64, at 6K we produce these materials that are truly spherical, void of porosity and satellites and with better flowability than powders made with competing technologies. If your application calls for requirements that can’t be achieved with existing AM materials or even with conventional manufacturing, we can design a solution. 6K, with UniMelt® Technology, is able to mass-produce spherical powders for high entropy alloys (HEAs) that could be used in AM as well as conventional consolidation processes like MIM, HIP, and powder forging.
