Elementum 3D Aluminium Alloys

Choosing the right high strength metal powder for your Laser Powder Bed Fusion production process is vital if you wish to achieve consistent quality every time, and with the confidence that there is zero cracking from liquation or hot tearing. For aluminium alloys there has always been a compromise in this choice, due to the known issues of welding with the most commonly used 6xxx, 7xxx and 2xxx series alloys, leading to the use of AlSi10Mg as an alternative.

Why settle for less, when aluminium alloys from Elementum 3D, containing the patented RAM technology, allow you to safely select any one of these commonly used high strength alloys.
