Fehrmann Alloys GmbH & Co KG, Hamburg, Germany, will present its new high-performance aluminium alloy for Additive Manufacturing, AlMgty-90, at this year’s Formnext, which will take place digitally from November 10–12, 2020.
The company explains that AlMgty-90 is based on its AlMgty-80 alloy, which was launched in 2019, but offers increased strength, resulting in an aluminium alloy with approximately 25% higher hardness (115 +/-3 HV ) compared to AlMgty-80.
Together with AM parameters at a similar level of AlSi10Mg and a density of 99%, AlMgty-90 is said to enable increased productivity for Additive Manufacturing, with a considerable reduction of material cost and production time.
Fehrmann Alloys states that AlMgty-90 offers the following benefits:
- Corrosion resistance
- Anodisable even in colour
- No exotic ingredients
- Attractive price
According to the company, the AlMgty-family is a patented and unique alloy system with an ambitious purpose: high-performance metal powders at a competitive price to increase productivity and reduce material costs and resources with the aim to help establish AM as a resource-friendly and value-adding production technology.
