JSJW New Materials: Bringing high-quality, high-volume spherical metal powder production to the Chinese market Based at the Powder Metallurgy Industrial Park of Taizhou City, Jiangsu Province, JiangSu JinWu (JSJW) New Materials Co., Ltd. has leveraged thirty years of research at Beijing University of Science and Technology to produce industrial volumes of high-quality spherical titanium, nickel superalloy and aluminium powders, as well as high-entropy powders, for applications including MIM, AM and PM. Dr Chiou Yau Hung (Dr Q) visited the company on behalf of PM Review and here offers an overview of how the management at JSJW has used its research expertise to advance the production and processing of challenging PM materials.

This article offers a classic example of the way a university’s scientific research can lead to entrepreneurship – a story of a teacher leading his students to leverage research results into industrial materials manufacture. Zhimeng Guo, a professor at Beijing University of Science and Technology, has worked incrementally for thirty years to build JiangSu JinWu (JSJW) New Materials Co., Ltd. Explaining the intention behind the company’s name, JinWu, Professor Guo referenced a popular Chinese idiom: “Sincerity can make metal and stone crack, we use them to benefit people.” JSJW is an advanced R&D and manufacturing company producing spherical metal powders. With over ten years of experience, the company today provides high-quality metal powders for Additive Manufacturing, Metal Injection Moulding, and other precision metal manufacturing processes.
