High Purity, Minimal Satellites
Metal powders from KOS are designed to be free of agglomerates that can interfere with the integrity of 3D printed parts. They have a high density, low porosity, a consistent microstructure, and are available in particle sizes ranging between 10um to 150um for use in different AM techniques such as PBF, PBF-EBM, MIM, TSA, and DED.
Wide Industrial Applications
Besides additive manufacturing, KOS powders are a popular choice for a variety of other industrial applications as well, including protective and decorative surface coating for aerospace and automotive parts, sintered components, and electrical parts. Many industries also use KOS metal powders during chemical processing for enhanced efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions
How pure are KOSWIRE metal powders?
Metal powders from KOS are renowned for their high purity which ranges from between 99% to 99.9%. These powders have very low amounts of deformations and have an even grain size distribution which makes them ideal for creating high-strength components.
What are the advantages of KOS metal powders?
There are many advantages to using metal powders from KOS. They have a consistent microstructure, high density, low porosity, and are free-flowing. This makes them a desirable choice for 3D printing, powder bed fusion, metal injection molding, and other advanced manufacturing techniques.
How does the EIGA atomization method used by KOS work?
EIGA atomization involves heating and melting a metal using an electromagnetic coil and then injecting it with an inert gas such as nitrogen or argon to turn it into fine droplets. These droplets rapidly cool down to create the metal powder.
Which types of metal powders does KOSWIRE produce?
KOS offers a wide range of nickel-based superalloys enhanced by EIGA atomization. Order them from KBM for fast shipping!
