Next Gen Alloys is a collaborative joint venture between Allegheny Technologies (ATI) and GE Aviation to develop and commercialize a meltless alloyed Titanium powder manufacturing process to meaningfully reinvent the titanium powder industry. Established in 2017, we are in the early phases of designing and constructing an R&D pilot production facility in Richburg, SC. The facility will produce alloyed powders for use in additive manufacturing applications, including 3D printing.
“The science of specialty metal powders is a transformative technology and we intend to maintain and enhance our industry-leading position.”
ATI Chairman (and former President and Chief Executive Officer)
“Developing new materials is an important part of our vision for our business. ATI is a recognized leader in advanced specialty materials, and we are excited about the collaboration this new joint venture enables.”
Chairman of GE and President and CEO of GE Aviation
Allegheny Technologies, a global leader in the production of technically advanced specialty materials and components, will provide operational, technical, and project support to the joint venture. The joint venture will leverage ATI’s technology, manufacturing, and quality leadership in the production of specialty metal powders and premium-quality titanium and nickel-based alloys for critical and technically advanced applications.
The JV will also draw upon GE Aviation’s engineering and development capabilities and technical knowledge of the use of alloyed titanium powders. GE Aviation is a world-leading provider of jet and turboprop engines, components, integrated digital, avionics, electrical power and mechanical systems for commercial, military, business and general aviation aircraft.
