SLM Solutions & Elementum 3D – metal additive manufacturing partnership
The companies have come together to cater for additive manufactures looking for materials beyond the industry standard to produce advanced products. It will mean users of SLM Solutions machines will now have access to materials they previously didn’t.
Elementum 3D recently installed an SLM 280 systems to test and define new powder development, while it already has an extensive portfolio of metal additive manufacturing materials. Within its portfolio are aluminium, copper, nickel alloy, steel alloy and tantalum powders which are developed according to the ISO 9001 quality management certification. Last year, the company was also granted patents in the US, Canada and Australia for its Reactive Additive Manufacturing technology which has helped Elementum 3D develop aluminium 1000, 2024, 6061, 7050 and 7075 materials.
