Germany’s Airbus APWorks GmbH has signed a strategic partnership with Toyal, a global producer of aluminium based products. The companies will partner on the development, production and distribution of Scalmalloy®, APWorks’s patented high-strength aluminium-magnesium- scandium alloy.

Scalmalloy is reported to be the world’s first material developed specifically for AM and, due to its high cooling rates and rapid solidification, possesses a unique microstructure which remains stable at high temperatures. It offers exceptionally high fatigue properties, weldability, strength and ductility compared to other aluminium alloy powders, which makes it particularly well-suited to aerospace, transportation and defence applications, among many others.

Toyal will now produce Scalmalloy as part of its materials range, and partner with APWorks for further developments in the composition of the alloy and the optimisation of its production process. In addition, Toyal will distribute the alloy through its own distribution network.

“We are convinced that Toyal is a cooperation partner with whom we can ensure a continuous development of the material composition and the production process of our unique material for our customers,” stated Sven Lauxmann, Head of Sales and Marketing at APWorks.

“The close collaboration creates an excellent synergy between Toyal’s decades of experience in the production and global marketing of aluminium based products and APWorks’ more intensive experience in processing Scalmalloy in 3D printing. Our common goal is to market Scalmalloy by the global presence of TOYAL for numerous customers and a wide range of applications ranging from aerospace to automotive up to robotics.”
