Enhancing additive manufacturing technology through the power of scandium.
When it comes to producing unusual and complex aluminium shapes/parts through 3D printing, aluminium-scandium alloys allow you to create a variety of geometric forms (including hollow spaces and honeycombs) that maintain microstructural stability while minimizing post-processing steps.
It can cost less to produce your aluminium parts when you use scandium in the additive manufacturing process.
With scandium, your aluminium parts produced through 3D printing are less prone to defects, allowing you in turn to decrease your production lead time.
As more businesses look to reproduce spare metal parts and shapes with enhanced mechanical properties, 3D alloy printing technology has recently seen a steady increase in development. With the introduction of aluminium-scandium alloys to the additive manufacturing process, 3D metal printing enters a new and exciting phase.
With aluminium-scandium powders, you can produce replacement parts that would offer higher mechanical properties for the same geometry.
As a result, you are 3D printing higher-grade alloys at a rapid pace using a cost-efficient production process that involves less waste material.
