Top performance in powder metallurgy

Experts in products that withstand the highest chemical, mechanical and thermal loads, the Austrian Plansee Group supplies customers in 50 countries with products made from high-tech materials like molybdenum and tungsten.

The company attaches great importance to the research and ongoing development of materials. Just recently, two employees from Plansee Hochleistungswerkstoffe — one of the four divisions in the Plansee Group — won awards for their research work in the area of potassium doped tungsten. Their research results show how the smallest amounts of potassium have a positive effect on the shape and temperature stability of tungsten. Under optimum dosages, this high-tech material can withstand temperatures up to 3,100 °C and can be used, for example, in modern Xenon short-arc lamps for digital cinema projectors.

With more than 30% of sales from new products, the Plansee Group more than measures up to its claim of providing "top performance in powder metallurgy". The material properties needed from the products is decided by customers from the industries of the future such as automotive, energy, electronics, semiconductors and medical engineering.
