metal materials

We produce metal AM parts in a wide variety of materials and can therefore offer the right choice for the requirements. In combination with the right part design, these materials can provide lightweight solutions without compromising on strength or structural performance in applications ranging from aerospace and motorsport to heavy and high tech industries.

 

The characteristics of each metal suit different 3D printing and manufacturing applications. These are summarised below:

Aluminium
AlSi10Mg

AlSi10Mg is a lightweight alloy used widely in the AM industry. Applications are widely varied between prototypes, functional parts and small runs of cast equivalent types such as LM9.
