Outokumpu enters a metal powder business in Krefeld

Outokumpu is entering a new business by starting to produce metal powder at the company’s mill in Krefeld, Germany. The metal powder production further strengthens Outokumpu’s ambitious sustainability strategy and circular economy efforts by using the steel scrap from local production to create new solutions to the market.
Outokumpu’s primary focus is on producing metal powders that are not yet on the market – suited for companies that use technologies such as Additive Manufacturing (AM), Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), Binder Jetting (BJ) and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) to produce parts for demanding applications. With metal powders, manufacturers can produce parts with higher complexity, less weight and decreased lead times, avoiding disruptions in the supply chain.
Outokumpu’s brand new portfolio of high-quality metal powders that includes stainless steel and nickel alloys have been specially formulated to meet the demands of modern manufacturing in terms of quality, sustainability and flexibility.
