“Combining the benefits of metallic 3D printing with new materials can greatly expand the possibilities for modern components.” This is how Airbus APWorks CEO Joachim Zettler describes the goal in the development of Scalmalloy ®. In cooperation with Airbus Group R&D the company developed a high-performance aluminium powder [ Details ]
Technology that allows to realize directly metal prototypes, ready to be tested or used as definitive parts. Available metals include Titanium (Ti64 grade 5), CobaltChrome (Cobalt-Chrome F75, Remanium Star CL), Aluminium (AlSi10Mg), StainlessSteel 17-4 and StainlessSteel AISI316L.
DMLS/SLM offers a remarkable precision and the materials are suitable for post-processings like milling and CNC turning, thermal treatments, surface treatments both esthetical and protective. DMLS/SLM is an optimal solution for the production of small lots, already in the definitive material, but without equipment costs (Rapid Manufacturing).
