Alloyed solutions support a truly effective design process for AM application development. They allow for the of design parts that work in serial production from their macro geometry down to the individual manufacturing commands. This delivers unequalled levels of speed and productivity.
Design work is also focused on improving the performance of components relative to their application. This can include specific emphasis on key properties including reducing overall weight without compromising functionality through optimised lattice structures; improving stiffness and/or durability; optimising heat transfer capabilities; and improving biological responses in patients with implant requirements.
Just one example is structural components for the electronics industry. Design development is focused on improving the stiffness and durability of the component in parallel with optimising the design for the metal laser powder bed fusion (PBF) additive manufacturing process.
