WAM Materials Aluminium for 3D Metal Printing

Aluminium is a widely used metal in part manufacturing due to its favourable properties. It is a lightweight, non-magnetic, and non-toxic metal with excellent corrosion resistance. These characteristics make it suitable for various applications across industries.

One of the key advantages of aluminium is its low density. This property makes it an ideal choice when weight reduction is crucial, such as in the Marine and Aerospace industries. Using aluminium parts can lead to improved fuel efficiency in vehicles and increased payload capacity in aircraft.

Another notable feature of aluminium is its corrosion resistance. It forms a natural oxide layer on its surface that protects against environmental factors. However, in certain harsh conditions, aluminium may require additional surface treatments or coatings to enhance its corrosion resistance.

There are a range of certified aluminium wire feedstocks that AML3D has tested for producing parts with ARCEMY® and Wire Additive Manufacturing (WAM®.)

Material Applications

An extensive array of metals and alloys is available to fabricate parts using our patented WAM® process and ARCEMY® print module.

Our process is highly adaptable to virtually any material, often resulting in superior property outcomes resulting from the Direct Energy Deposition (DED) process.

For additional properties, parts can be heat-treated, coated or used as a feature addition, supporting traditionally manufactured parts.

Lighter and stronger parts
High processability
Increased conductivity
Resistant to corrosion
