AM Extrusion GmbH, Radebeul, Germany, was presented with the Fachmetall PM Qualification Award at this year’s Hagen Symposium on Powder Metallurgy. Presented on November 25, 2022, the award was accompanied by a certificate and a sculpture.
Established in 2019, AM Extrusion focuses on producing filaments that are highly filled with metallic or ceramic powders for Additive Manufacturing. AM Extrusion claims that they can process virtually any available metal or ceramic powders into sintered materials. The company’s filaments – used for Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) – have a filling degree of 62-65 vol-% that enables them to result in high-precision components.
Dr Aljoscha Roch, Technical Manager of AM Extrusion, studied physics at the Technical University Dresden. He has been working on modifying particle surfaces for more effective incorporation into organic binder systems for AM and Powder Injection Moulding processes. He acquired his in-depth knowledge of sintering processes by studying the processing of metallic and ceramic nanoparticles.
Fachmetall GmbH is a metallurgical laboratory specialising in investigations of Powder Metallurgy and wrought materials. With its annual presentations of the international Fachmetall PM Qualification Award and QM Context Award, Fachmetall hopes to draw the attention of the public to companies with outstanding PM and quality management activities and knowledge.
