Nippon Atomized Metal Powders was established in 1964 in the Japanese city of Noda, in Chiba Prefecture. In 2012 the company built this new plant in neighboring Ibaraki Prefecture.
Batches of metal powder typically weighing 8,800-11,000 lb (4,000-5,000 kg) are loaded into the Munson rotary batch mixer from an overhead container that is moved into position by a crane.
As the rotary batch mixer discharges, particle size distribution remains unchanged, which was not the case with other mixers used by Nippon Atomized Metal Powders.
The 90 cu ft (2.5 cu m) capacity rotary batch mixer evacuates fully, eliminating wasted material and allowing rapid, thorough cleaning between changeovers.
Copper-tin pre-alloyed bronze powder for diamond cutting is the finest (20-30 micron) homogenized in the 90 cu ft (2.5 cu m) capacity rotary batch mixer
Pure copper powder, the coarsest powder processed in the rotary batch mixer, ranges from 85-100 microns.
Nippon Atomized Metal Powders' main product for oil-less bearings is partially premixed copper-tin bronze powder.
Customers make accurately-shaped products with Nippon Atomized Metal Powders' fine, uniform oil-less metals.
