Uniformity Labs, Fremont, California, USA, has released its new titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V (Ti64) powder for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing. Ti64 offers a high strength-to-weight ratio and is biocompatible, making it ideal for medical and high-performance applications, including performance automotive and aerospace components.

Ti64 Grade 23 is an alloy of titanium, aluminium, and vanadium, said to exhibit best-in-class mechanical performance, surface roughness, and uniformity across the build bed, in parallel with greatly improved throughput. Typical builds are reported to deliver an average of 99.96% density in the as-printed state and are 1.5X to 2X faster, depending on machine and part geometry, as compared to the same builds performed at the same layer thickness using standard powder and machine parameters.

“The application of Uniformity Ti64 Grade 23 delivers material properties excellence and repeatability for our customers who require parts that perform to the highest standard in extreme conditions,” stated Uniformity founder and CEO, Adam Hopkins. “Our powders deliver robust mechanical properties, low surface roughness, and high print yield, in addition to substantially increasing machine throughput.”

The availability of this powder follows the recent announcement of a Uniformity collaboration with AddUp, targeted to maximize the productivity of Uniformity’s Ti64 Grade 23 ELI alloy using AddUp’s FormUp350 PBF-LB AM machine. This partnership targets regulated healthcare and aerospace production using metal Additive Manufacturing technologies.

Uniformity Labs is exhibiting at RAPID+TCT, booth #1942
