Unlocking Potential: From Powder To Part

Materials are the building blocks of innovation, but their true potential lies in their transformation into usable forms. Through the revolutionary process of powder to part, we unlock a world of possibilities. From raw powders to precision-engineered components, this transformative journey empowers us to push boundaries and redefine what's achievable.​

History of Innovation: CDC Process

Our clients approached us with a challenge: to create components from  raw material powder and convert them directly to a near-fully finished part. This challenge stemmed from a market and physical world limitation: the materials - and components - with the required properties could not be produced from bar stock, billets or blocks. Due to natural, chemical and structural limitations they simply did not exist.  

To solve this market challenge, Utron Kinetics developed its patented Combustion-Driven Compaction (CDC) process. By combining laser, kinetic and compressive energy, CDC converts photonic and chemical energy to produce components with unique material properties, exceptionally high density and ultra-harsh environment performance.
