The first metal powders for additive manufacturing derived from sustainable sources are made by 6K. This first-of-its-kind process has the unique ability to convert certified chemistry machined millings, turnings and other recycled feedstock sources into premium AM-ready metal powder. The 6k’s process technology can produce premium powder from certified machining turnings and previously used powders, and in the future further extend its capability to feedstock created from AM support structures, non-conforming AM parts post-print, and other inputs.


The goal: use 100% of the materials that enter the supply chain, providing AM end-users a new way to manage project costs and control supply chain


The powder products are made of the combination of two core technologies. On the one hand, 6K alloy reclaimation technology can reclaim metals and alloys from subtractive manufacturing and other operations. On the other hand, 6K UniMelt plasma system refers to the microwave production scale plasma, with a highly uniform and precise plasma zone with zero contamination, and capable of high throughput production of advanced battery powders, phosphors, AM materials, and more.
