Numanova, an Italeaf Group’s company specialised in the production of metal powders used as raw materials in additive manufacturing (or 3D printing), announces that it has announces that it has produced, for the National Laboratories of Gran Sasso (LNGS) of INFN, a supply of 10 kg of pure copper powder, one of the most difficult metals to process because of its chemical-physical properties characterized by a high thermal and electrical conductivity. The total quantity of material produced by Numanova is equal to 60 Kg.

The National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) is the Italian public research body dedicated to the study of the fundamental constituents of the subject and the laws that govern them. INFN Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) is the largest underground laboratory in the world devoted to neutrino and astroparticle physics, a worldwide research facility for scientists working in this field of research, where particle physics, cosmology and astrophysics meet. It is unequalled anywhere else, as it offers the most advanced underground infrastructures in terms of dimensions, complexity and completeness. The powders produced by Numanova will be used for 3D printing (additive manufacturing) of components for the particle accelerator in the Gran Sasso laboratories.

“We are particularly pleased to have completed this highly innovative production – stated the CEO of Numanova, Marco Paura-. This is an order of considerable technological value, characterized by a purity of materials that other plants cannot guarantee and that also opens up a market, that of international research, which we had not budgeted at the beginning of the activity. Our plant in Nera Montoro (TR) is qualified as the leading production centre in Italy for innovative materials for the growing sector of additive manufacturing, bringing new contents to the great metallurgical tradition of Terni area”.

In addition to pure copper powders, in recent days Numanova has also produced a significant quantity of Ti-Al powders (aluminide) for the sector of 3D printing of motor racing components (mainly engine). Also in this case, it is a highly innovative application in a competitive sector that represents a significant commercial output for the company.
