Carpenter Technology Corporation announced the opening of its Emerging Technology Center in Athens in Alabama. Carpenter Technology’s 500,000-square-foot ETC is North America’s newest additive manufacturing facility containing true end-to-end capabilities. The ETC provides the capability to atomize a range of specialty alloys into metal powder and manufacture the powder into finished parts using 3D metal printing. Its downstream equipment for taking the initially produced part to a final finished product includes the latest, state-of-the-art quick cooling Hot Isostatic Press system in the United States, as well as vacuum heat treating to optimize the material properties of high-value specialty alloy components. Parts manufactured in the ETC can then be qualified for use in a range of cross-industry applications, from aerospace and transportation to oil and gas and energy.

Critically, the ETC is designed to maintain full traceability and provide analytical insights throughout the manufacturing process via a digital thread, allowing Carpenter Technology to manage the entire manufacturing process under one roof with a streamlined workflow, a key differentiator for the Company in the AM industry.

The ETC investment complements Carpenter Technology’s 500,000-square-foot Alabama manufacturing facility, which began operations in 2014, and produces high-end specialty alloy products, primarily for the aerospace and energy markets.
