AM 4 AM, a producer of advanced metal powders for Additive Manufacturing based in Foetz, Luxembourg, has announced further improvements in the mechanical properties of its HiperAL aluminium alloy.

HiperAL is a zirconium derivative of a 7000 series aluminium powder produced by AM 4 AM’s patented cold plasma treatment. The enhanced mechanical properties reached 525 MPa in yield strength and 550 MPa in UTS. The improvement is said to represent a breakthrough, resulting from extensive research and development collaboration with the company’s partner Pint, headquartered in Metz, France.
