Puris Introduces "Puris 5+™"

New Titanium Powder (Ti-6Al-4V) Optimized for Additive Manufacturing

BRUCETON MILLS, W. Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Puris, LLC (www.purisllc.com) announced today that it has filed a patent for Puris 5+TM, a proprietary, new Titanium powder formulation specifically designed to meet the demands of additive manufacturing.

Recognizing the market need for a high-strength, low-oxygen formulation Puris powder metallurgists developed Puris 5+, a custom composition of Ti-6Al-4V that meets all the specifications of Grade 5.

Typically additive manufacturers seek to balance the oxygen levels needed to obtain the desired strength properties with the increases in oxygen levels inherent in some additive-manufacturing processes. This creates a challenge in laser melt or e-beam direct melt 3D printing, as both processes experience increases in oxygen content with each recycle of excess powder from the build box. By starting with Puris 5+ customers can manage this balance of oxygen and strength better throughout the life cycle of the Titanium powder.

"The introduction of low-oxygen, high-strength Grade 5 Titanium powder represents a major breakthrough that equips our customers to better control the oxygen pickup inherent in their processes. The result is more efficient utilization without compromising powder strength," Puris CEO Craig Kirsch said.

"Puris 5+ is an exciting example of our companys continuing leadership in advanced Titanium powder for additive manufacturing, made possible by our deep metallurgy and powder metallurgy expertise," Kirsch added. "The efficacy of AM ultimately depends on such powder quality and advancements."

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
