Additive Manufacturing Grades
Valimet’s AM line of aluminum alloy powders is specifically designed for additive manufacturing. After atomization via inert gas for spherical morphology, the powders are sized to eliminate fines and enhance flowability. The particle size distributions are tailored to maximize density, improve mechanical properties and optimize printing performance while meeting stringent OEM specifications.
Our standard grade of AM powders has a particle size distribution in the range of -53/+15µ. This finer particle size is great for higher resolution without sacrificing properties. Valimet’s “C” grade powders have a slightly coarser distribution and good flow characteristics, sized in the range of -63/+20µm.
Some of our typical AM grades listed in the data sheet below are: AM 103, AM 103C (AlSi10Mg), AM 357, AM 357C (F357), AM 6061, AM 7075, AM 2024, and AM 205 (which is sold and distributed through patent holder AMT Ltd).
In addition to offering standard grades for a variety of industrial AM machines, Valimet may also be able to tailor powders to meet your unique chemistry and sizing needs. We look forward to working with you. Our Powder…Your Vision!
