Fehrmann Alloys GmbH & Co KG, Hamburg, Germany, reports that it has added six new aluminium alloys to its portfolio, suitable for Additive Manufacturing processes. After the success of its corrosion-resistant, high-performance AlMgty80 and AlMgty90, the company has now added AlMgty70, AlMgty100 as well as standard cast aluminium AlMgty3, AlMgty5, AlMgty50 and the aluminium-zinc alloy AlZnty5.
All of the new alloys can be processed by Additive Manufacturing, they can be polished, anodised in colour, are non-corrosive and are said to show excellent mechanical properties that are transferable across AM and casting applications.
In the development of new materials, the company states it leverages in-house expertise and technology partnerships with leading institutes such as Fraunhofer Research Institution for Additive Production Technologies (IAPT). In the past, Fehrmann Alloys has developed high-performance aluminum alloys for AM one-offs or small series production, as well as for casting in huge volumes on an industrial scale. A number of its alloys are also suitable for extrusion.
Fehrmann Alloys will be showcasing its range of materials and services at Formnext 2021, Frankfurt, Germany, from November 16–19, on booth 12.0 C121.
