Solid-state alloy powder technology

Low impact, high value processing

Metalysis owns a lower impact, more efficient, multi-metal alloy powder technology

A breakthrough U.K. technology

Our modular technology is used to commercially produce high value metals and innovative alloy powders used in advanced manufacturing

Improving end-user economics

Our powders, vital metal 3D printing ingredients, are cost competitive and lower environmental impact relative to traditional processes

Our Mission

Metalysis is a growing U.K. headquartered company with a solid-state alloy powder technology which is lower-cost and more environmentally friendly than traditional production methods.

Our technology began with the Fray-Farthing-Chen (“FFC”) Process invented at the University of Cambridge, UK. Now proven at industrial scale, it can generate high margins from the manufacture of a huge range of metals and alloy powders. They are used by a wide range of industries, including 3D printing applications, magnetic materials, light-weighting in aerospace and electric vehicle components in the automotive industries.

Our Vision

Powering metal additive manufacturing

Adopting new technologies and combining them with core business offerings, often called the Internet of Things, is shaping the future of the products and processes our world requires. Smart manufacturing is central to Metalysis’ vision, and the company has the technology, production and know-how to meet the challenges it poses.

Cleaner and cost competitive

Metalysis has a cleaner, cost competitive metal powder processing technology which will play a fundamental part in the future of additive manufacturing. Our technology is proven at industrial scale and harnessed by a wide range of industry partners adopting metal AM to improve productivity.

Modular at commercial scale

Our technology is modular: It can be scaled up, or down, by stringing our cells together. Multi-metal manufacturing a large range metal and alloy powders can be continually adapted to a given specification. This provides ‘just-in-time’ options to make conventional and unconventional metals, master alloys, high entropy alloys and other advanced materials.

Diverse and growing market

Our technology and powders are used in all sorts of fast growing applications that include medical implants, light-weighting aircraft, magnetic materials, distributed manufacture and electric vehicles.

Materials Discovery Centre

At our Materials Discovery Centre, in South Yorkshire’s Advanced Manufacturing Park, we carry out commercial R&D programmes for international partners in industry and academia. These range from highly prized metals and alloys increasingly used in additive manufacturing, to completely new alloys previously considered too difficult or costly to produce.

Materials Manufacturing Centre

At our Materials Manufacturing Centre, in the Dearne Valley, our Generation 4 (“Gen4”) expansion was mechanically completed in 2017. Post-commercial rollout, it will offer capacity to produce hundreds of tonnes of valuable, 3D printable alloy powders, including titanium and aluminium alloys.

Introducing Generation 5

Our next expansion phase, Generation 5 (“Gen5”) was Board-approved in 2017. It is a project of scale and nature like the U.K. has never seen before, and will present distributed manufacturing options for thousands of tonnes per annum of high value alloy powders.

Our Values

Promoting the adoption and improving the performance of metal powder additive manufacturing

Based in the U.K. industrial heartland of South Yorkshire, Metalysis seeks to play a leading role in Industry 4.0. We promote and progress the adoption of metal additive manufacturing across high specification industries. Our growing team does this to improve manufacturing productivity for economic benefit.
Our company is answering global demand growth for metal powders as the additive and advanced manufacturing industries continue to embrace our technology. We are creating jobs as we expand production to provide cost-competitive, environmentally conscience technology to international partners. Our company is proud to be part of a small, diverse group of innovative, commercially proven technology houses, who are together positioning the U.K. as a global leader in smart manufacturing.
