America Makes has allowed us to keep abreast of new technologies and connect with new partners, vendors and customers.--Eric Bono, VP, Engineering Solutions, Puris, LLC.

Company Background:

Puris supplies the world with the cleanest Titanium powders. Our many manufacturing and processing innovations have generated the data that allow us to confidently make that claim. We supply global leaders with standard alloys as well as work with them to develop the next generation of Titanium and Titanium Aluminide alloys. We also manufacture very large components on our modified ExOne binder jet printers out of a variety of materials.

Initiatives in Additive Manufacturing:

Puris has numerous initiatives that serve the AM industry:

  • Developing, AM specific alloys, such as our Puris Grade 5+™ which provides Ti-6Al-4V powder with low oxygen to allow for maximum reuse, while still easily exceeding any industry minimum strength requirements
  • Writing and subsequently executing practical powder specifications that provide customers with the best powder for their process at the best possible price
  • Manufacturing Titanium and Titanium Aluminide alloy powders
  • Printing large and complex components that aren't possible with other printing technologies – we've worked with parts up to several hundred pounds using this approach
  • Developing new alloys for valve and bearing applications
  • Serving as a powder R&D branch for many of our customers
