NanoAL commercialises Addalloy 5T aluminium powder for AM

November 13, 2020

Materials research and technology company NanoAL, LLC, Boston, Massachusetts, USA, reports that it has commercialised its award-winning, metal Additive Manufacturing technology Addalloy® 5T aluminium alloy powder.

Addalloy 5T is designed and developed for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) metal AM and is a proprietary, high-performance aluminium-magnesium-based alloy that is reportedly easy to use and cost-effective to process.

The company explains that Addalloy 5T powder is 100% pre-alloyed, eliminating secondary powder treatments or blends and simplifying useability. High performance is said to be achieved without using expensive alloying elements or adding ceramic particles.

NanoAM also stated that Additive Manufacturing speeds with Addalloy 5T can meet or exceed the productivity of aluminium alloys available in today’s market.

Dr Nhon Vo, CEO of NanoAL LLC, commented, “I’m excited to see Addalloy powder product commercialised, enabling engineers and designers to fully leverage the technology advancement of 3D-printing and attractive characteristics of high-performance aluminium alloys.
