SLM Solutions Group AG, Lübeck, Germany, has reported that its customers can now benefit from access to previously unavailable metal powders from Elementum 3D, Erie, Colorado, USA, in addition to the range of standard metal powders it currently offers.

Elementum 3D is an AM research and development company that specialises in the creation of advanced metals, composites, and ceramics.

“It’s imperative to provide every manufacturer with the option to adopt the disruptive power of Additive Manufacturing and having the right materials available that will meet their specific needs is the first step,” stated Dr Jacob Nuechterlein, president and founder of Elementum 3D.

Industries such as aerospace, space, automotive, and defence have continued to seek out metal AM as a viable option to advance application innovation. However, the limited diversity of metal materials, especially aluminium, has traditionally blocked those initiatives, claims SLM Solutions.

Recently, Elementum 3D implemented an SLM280 machine to test and define new powder development.

Charlie Grace, Chief Sales Officer at SLM Solutions, commented, “It’s great to have partners like Elementum 3D that focuses on meeting the extended needs and desires of our customer base.”
