Uniformity Labs, Fremont, California, USA, has released its UniFuse AlSi10Mg aluminium powder and machine parameters for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing. The high-performance scanning parameters are optimised at 50 and 90 µm layer thicknesses in machines featuring 400 and 700 W lasers, and are said to deliver superior properties at an approximately 75% increased build rate compared to current options.

Higher bed and tap densities with particle size distributions optimised for uniform, repeatable Additive Manufacturing at high throughput reputedly enables the powders to deliver improved mechanical properties and consistent performance across the build bed, even building at thicker layers with high laser powers.

“With UniFuse™ AlSi10Mg we’re able to deliver best-in-class mechanical properties, surface finish, printing yield, and part reliability with substantially increased throughput printing at 50 and 90 µm layer thickness, and when using higher power lasers,” stated Adam Hopkins, founder, Uniformity Labs. “This is significant for advancing AM as a viable pillar for industrial manufacturing and shows that our technology and process deliver on the promise of no compromise additive manufacturing.”

Currently in production under the product brands UniFuse for PBF-LB and UniJet for Binder Jetting, and with its high-performance scanning strategies, Uniformity Labs states that it has improved the ability to produce high-quality parts repeatedly and at scale – enabling the furthering of AM serial production.

This announcement follows the recent availability of a range of steel, aluminum, and titanium powders under the brand UniFuse for PBF-LB and BJT with others nearing availability.
