Ultrapure metallic powders with a guaranteed title and extra-fine and homogenous particle size, specifically developed for additive manufacturing processes (3d print) for the goldsmith and dental sectors.
Powders belonging to POWMET are: precious powders at title of gold alloy and silver alloy; non-precious powders of bronze and steel, as well as chromium-cobalt powders for the dental sector.
POWMET line powders are atomized via an exclusive process which allows to obtain perfectly spherical particles with uniform chemical composition and low impurities content. They are sieved to obtain a precise granulometric distribution suitable to maximize the material performance during the production process.
Thanks to investments in large-scale machineries and a proven expertise in metallurgy and in the production processes, LEGOR GROUP is able to cope with any requirements, guaranteeing constant quality in both small and large quantities.
Using POWMET powders for additive manufacturing processes guarantees quality standards comparable to those obtained by using LEGOR GROUP’s MASTER ALLOY products for the traditional production techniques, such as microfusion and mechanical work.
Choosing POWMET for additive manufacturing means:
- more freedom in the product design and customizations
- time-to-market reduction
- easier prototyping stage
- easier process in case of small quantities/batches production
Manufacturing jewelry pieces with PLM technology compared to the traditional lost-wax-casting is substantially different. Many advantages arise from reproducing jewelry designs directly from the CAD/CAM virtual image to the real metal piece. Read a brief analysis of advantages that both designers and manufacturers can benefit from when utilizing the new cutting-edge PLM technology: technology advantages.

POWMET BY LEGOR
Powmet is the Legor Group line of very fine metallic powders, in several different granulometries, purposely designed for PLM or SLM processes. The Legor Group powder is atomized via an exclusively process (which allows spherical particles to be produced with uniform chemical composition and low oxygen content) and sieved to obtain a precise granulometric distribution suitable for all PLM applications and for any machine used.
The Powmet line is characterized by ultrapure powders with guaranteed title and extra-fine, homogeneous granulometry. The Powmet line is available for the production of gold, silver and non-precious metal objects (chromium-cobalt) and will shortly be improved and enlarged starting from palladium and platinum-based alloys.
The production of metallic powders for the gold jewellery market requires a long experience in metallurgy and efficient plants capable of guaranteeing long-term quality of the batches produced. For this reason Legor Group has invested in large-scale machinery which can cope with any requirements, guaranteeing constant quality in both small and large quantities.
It is important to remember that in this new technology, the metallic powder used constitutes in itself the product, since the jewellery item is created directly from the powder.
A quality powder is therefore a guarantee of perfect results.
