Avimetal AM, a subsidiary of Jingcheng Electromechanical, Beijing, China, has added four new Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machines to its portfolio: the MT280, MT330, MT450, and the MT650.

The company has reported that first of these models, a MT280, was recently delivered to a Chinese university, strengthening the company’s existing relationship with university researchers focussed on AM. The cooperation between the company and the university is expected to enable the research & development of new alloy powders and to boost the AM industry in China.

The MT280 AM machine is aimed at the needs of both scientific research (small batch production) and multi-application fields. The core parameters of the equipment are all open source, and compatible with titanium and its alloys, superalloys, aluminium alloys and a variety of refractory metals.

In August of this year, one month before the first successful delivery, the equipment development team conducted strict AM testing on MT280, and successively carried out the verification of typical materials such as titanium alloys, high-temperature alloy, aluminium alloys and refractory metals. The density of these additively manufactured materials was said to be above 99.9%, and the full-format consistency, build accuracy, mechanical properties and stability between different batches were all reported to meet the needs of users.

Relying on over a decade of material research and development, Avimetal AM has accumulated a solid foundation of knowledge on PBF-LB Additive Manufacturing. Currently, Avimetal AM is putting more machines into production and making deliveries to organisations in both research and industry. In the future, the company hopes to produce a combined material and process database, as well as bringing Additive Manufacturing to a variety of industries.
