EOS has introduced the addition of a brand new materials to its metallic 3D printing portfolio, which guarantees to “considerably scale back half weight” and ship “cheaper manufacturing.”
EOS Aluminium Al2139 AM is claimed to be the the additive manufacturing (AM) firm’s highest energy aluminium alloy thus far and can initially be made obtainable for the EOS M 290 platform in early 2022, with different EOS DMLS methods set to observe.
The fabric presents high-performance underneath elevated temperatures as much as 200ºC, good corrosion resistance, and elevated energy properties, permitting customers to provide lighter elements with out compromising on energy, a characteristic EOS says will attraction to producers in aviation, transportation, racing and the area industries.
The fabric advantages from a single-step warmth remedy course of which EOS says can save corporations as much as 88% in energetic warmth remedy time. As soon as handled, Al2139 AM achieves a yield and tensile energy round 500 MPa (megapascal), and elements can then endure electropolishing and anodising processes.
Sascha Rudolph, Senior Vice President EOS Metallic Supplies mentioned: “At EOS we’re consistently striving to enhance the efficiency of our buyer’s manufactured elements, while decreasing the quantity of fabric wanted and streamlining manufacturing processes. EOS Aluminium Al2139 AM is a fruits of these efforts to place new supplies improvements within the fingers of producers.”
The announcement was made throughout Formnext final week the place the corporate additionally revealed the acquisition of a stake in Austrian metallic supplies firm Metalpine in a bid to collectively develop sustainable metallic powders.
