Qualloy and AddiMap collaborate to streamline Additive Manufacturing procurement

June 13, 2023

Qualloy, a digital marketplace for metal powders, has announced that it will be partnering with AM process parameters trading platform Addimap to provide a comprehensive solution that encompasses both the sourcing of metal powders and the accessibility of validated printing parameters. By linking the two marketplaces, users will be seamlessly directed to the offerings of the other platform, ensuring they have access to a holistic ecosystem for their AM needs.

Qualloy’s digital marketplace seeks to simplify the powder market by providing a platform where sellers and buyers can connect and transact with ease. By leveraging an intelligent search algorithm, Qualloy streamlines the sourcing process, enabling users to find the ideal metal powders for their specific machines and specifications from a range of certified global suppliers. This allows users to freely switch between different powder manufacturers, optimising price, delivery time, and quality, all while ensuring a transparent and efficient procurement process.

Through this partnership, we aim to further enhance the user experience by providing seamless access to AddiMap’s extensive printing parameters database, empowering users to unlock the full potential of Additive Manufacturing.”

AddiMap grants users access to their parameter library, allowing them to transition from digital models to physical products without the need for extensive parameter studies.

Gregor Graf, Initiator of AddiMap, emphasised the importance of cooperation and cost reduction in advancing the adoption of metal AM, stating, “Cooperation is the key to leverage the full potential of metal AM. Less costs and more materials will lead to faster industrial adoption. With AddiMap, we aim to provide users with a vast range of process parameters, enabling them to increase productivity, optimise properties, explore new materials and streamline their AM operations.”

This collaboration hopes to simplify the AM industry, streamlining the procurement process for metal powders and providing users with access to a comprehensive database of printing parameters.
