Description

ATO Noble is an ultrasonic metal powder atomizer with the same basic features as ATO Lab Plus, but modified to work with precious metals and produce high quality precious metal powders. It responds to customer needs for economical atomization of expensive and rare metal alloys. Since there are no limitations on the minimum load and the system is easy to change to another material, the cost effectiveness and freedom of the atomization process are assured. The ATO Noble is specifically designed to produce precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, etc. with high productivity and efficiency. ATO Noble uses Zero Loss Technology which reduces material waste to an absolute minimum. We have achieved this by creating a specially adapted filtration system and a closed loop of gas circulation. Innovative system allows recovery of valuable materials for reuse with a single click of a button.

 

PRECIOUS METALS

ATO Noble is specially designed for the production of precious metals powders such as gold, silver, platinum, etc., with high productivity and efficiency

PARAMETERS DEDICATED UNDER PRECIOUS METALS

The ATO Noble meets customers’ needs for cost-effective atomization of expensive and rare metal alloys. Since there is no minimum load limit and the system is easily switched to another material, cost efficiency and freedom of atomization process is ensured. 

MAXIMUM MATERIAL RECOVERY

ATO Noble uses Zero Loss technology, which minimizes material loss. 3D LAB achieved this by creating a special filtration system and a closed gas circulation loop. The innovative system allows valuable materials to be recovered for reuse at the touch of a button.

ULTRASONIC POWDER ATOMIZATION TECHNOLOGY

Ultrasonic vibration technology is used to break molten metal into small droplets, which rapidly solidify into metal powder in an inert gas atmosphere. The metal powder size produced depends on the frequency of the ultrasonic waves, with higher frequencies producing smaller particles and lower frequencies producing larger particles. Factors affecting particle size and distribution are viscosity, density, ultrasonic amplitude and atomizer design. Ultrasonic atomization of metal powder using ATO technology is a process in which metal powder is melted using an electric arc. Ultrasonic vibrations are then transmitted into the molten metal, creating capillary waves. These waves eject metal droplets, which are rounded and cooled before being collected and sorted. The result is almost perfectly spherical metal droplets.

precious METAL POWDERs MAIN APPLICATIONS

Metal powders are used in the jewelry industry to create intricate designs and shapes that would be difficult or impossible to produce using traditional methods. Powder metallurgy allows for greater precision and consistency in the production of metal components. Metal powders are used in the production of a wide range of jewelry items, including rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches. The jewelry industry requires high-quality metal powders that can be used to create complex designs and shapes with great accuracy. ATO Noble ultrasonic metal atomizers produce fine, uniform powders with a high degree of purity and consistent particle size distribution. These powders are ideal for use in powder metallurgy processes such as Metal Injection Molding (MIM) and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), which are commonly used in the production of jewelry components. The jewelry industry uses a wide range of alloys, including gold, silver, platinum, palladium and copper. Precious metal alloys are often used to create high-end jewelry, while copper alloys are more commonly used in fashion jewelry.

 


ATO NOBLE ADVANTAGES

COMPACT SIZE, SUITABLE FOR USE IN SMALL SPACES
