APWorks partners with LPW Technology on Scalmalloy distribution

March 22, 2018

Airbus APWorks GmbH, Taufkirchen, Germany, has formed a strategic partnership with metal powder manufacturer LPW Technology to supply its Scalmalloy® aluminium-magnesium-scandium alloy to the Additive Manufacturing industry. Scalmalloy is a second generation high-strength aluminium powder developed and patented by APWorks specifically for use in laser-based Additive Manufacturing.

Ben Ferrar, LPW’s Chief Operating Officer, stated, “We are continually expanding our materials range to enable new applications and productionisation of the technology. Expanding our metal powder range to include Scalmalloy, with its high strength, lightweight characteristics, enables manufacturers to access the technological and commercial benefits this proven metal AM alloy has to offer.”

“Compared to all other aerospace aluminium alloys, Scalmalloy offers a unique level of corrosion resistance,” he added. “Its high strength-to-weight ratio makes it perfect for light-weighting applications, crucial to optimising the build to use ratio in component design. Scalmalloy enables the lowest buy-to-fly ratio compared to conventionally designed and manufactured parts.”

Sven Lauxmann, Chief Sales And Marketing Officer of APWorks, commented, “Partnering strategically with an AM metal powder specialist such as LPW further strengthens the Scalmalloy supply chain, supporting APWorks’ vision to expand the industrial application of AM technologies and solutions across the sectors.”
