Who cares about Metal AM materials?
Who cares about the diversity of #MetalAM materials ❓ #MaterialsMonday
We see an increasing demand for special #MetalAM materials for new industrial applications and products. But the industrialization of #MetalAM is lagging behind because nobody wants to take the costs and risks for the complex material qualification processes.
Our logical explanation:
❌ System providers focus on system sales and don't want to invest too much R&D in "niche materials"
❌ Metal powder providers focus on large quantities and already qualified materials for higher margin
❌ Service providers don't want to change materials too often and shy away from qualification costs an risks
➡️ Not enough suitable materials available for new AM applications of end customers
We at Rosswag Engineering want to tackle this issue and help the #MetalAM industry to grow by providing a higher amount of qualified materials 💪 With every new material added to our portfolio, we get a better unterstanding regarding the material-dependent relationships between the different process parameters 📈 And we want to make these information usable for everybody on AddiMap
Our vision since 2014 ➡️ Build the world's most efficient qualification framework for new #MetalAM materials to satisfy on-demand needs within agile and innovative development processes 🚀
⚙️ Holistic in-house process chain with small-batch metal powder atomization
📅 Initial results after 2-4 weeks ➡️ No time and resources wasted ❗
🤓 Science-oriented with DoE and process simulation software
✅ Qualification process chain validated on more than 40 LPBF materials
🤝 All material and data from one single source
