Allegheny Technologies Inc. announced a joint venture with GE Aviation to develop a new manufacturing technology for meltless titanium alloy powder. The materials being developed are intended for use in additive manufacturing.

ATI will provide operational, technical, and project support to the joint venture, which will have its own R&D pilot production facility. The goal is to leverage both ATI’s technology and manufacturing of specialty metal powders and titanium- and nickel-based alloys, and GE Aviation’s engineering and development capabilities, as well as its technical knowledge of alloyed titanium powders.
