LIBERTY Powder Metals
Powders engineered for a greener future
LIBERTY Powder Metals is a powder metals producer and supplier established by LIBERTY Steel UK – a fully integrated steel manufacturer and distributor – and supported by the Tees Valley Combined Authority.
We are a growing enterprise providing a wide range of vacuum induction melted and plasma atomised powder products and services.
Our goal is to supply a broad spectrum of application optimised powder metals and alloys, designed to deliver the best results for our customers whichever production technique they may choose; from Additive Manufacturing (AM) and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), through Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), to Laser Metal Deposition (LMD).
We work together with our customers, and the wider support network we have developed across Universities, Research Organisations, Catapult Centres, Distributors, and OEMs globally. We are committed to a dedicated R&D programme to develop next-generation alloys that address the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Our vision is to be the UK’s leading hub of expertise in powder-based metals, starting in the Teesside region with £10m investment in a new state-of-the-art facility for vacuum inert gas atomisation and powder processing with our partner the Materials Processing Institute, a world-leading research and innovation partner to the global steel and metals industries specialising in; advanced materials, low carbon energy, the circular economy, and industry 4.0.
All of our work is underpinned by our GREENSTEEL initiative which aims to deliver a strong positive impact on the domestic economy and demonstrate a new approach to our manufacturing strategy.
Powder metallurgy either in Additive Manufacturing or other near net-shape processes such as PM-HIP is being adopted more widely across a growing range of industries and our optimised powder metals and alloys can be found in mission-critical and safety-conscious sectors including:
- Aerospace, Space and Defence
- Medical and Biomedical
- Precision Engineering
In all cases optimised powders providing consistent results are imperative.
