High-tech materials for additive manufacturing

The increasing industrialization of additive manufacturing methods is also increasing user demand on the material properties of the mate- rials to be used. The LKR has recognized this need and is developing new, modified aluminium and magnesium materials which are used in the form of powders or wires as an additive material for the rapid prototyping using the additive manufacturing route. The challenge is to create the alloys in such a way as to meet both the high demands of the processes and the expected properties of the resulting compo- nents. From a sustainability and cost reduction viewpoint, the LKR also pays great attention to alloys that do not require expensive che- mical elements, so that a wider variety of affordable materials will be available in industrial applications in the future. „With the step of ma- terial development of light metal alloys for additive manufacturing, the LKR is in the process of developing a research topic with great potential and far-reaching effects on the production of the future,“ says Andreas Kraly, Managing Director at the LKR.
