The new high-performance aluminum alloy for 3D printing
Market launch 2019/2020
Higher strength combined with excellent ductility? Check.
AlMgty is an alloy system. This means that we can vary the components to create different mechanical properties in accordance with the customer's requirements.
No corrosion. No exotic components. No cost explosions. But high performance.
AlMgty consists solely of generally available components. We do not use ingredients like scandium that are in short supply and where the extractionconditions are hard to control. Without any loss in strength and at an attractive price.
Anodisable, polishable, seawater-resistant
With the silicon-free high-performance aluminum alloy AlMgty, Fehrmann ALLOYS makes it possible for the first time to add colour to metal parts produced by additive manufacturing.
Until now, the colour grey-brown has dominated metal 3D printing, because components made of the primarily related standard alloy AlSi10Mg cannot be anodised well due to its silicon content of 9 to 11 percent. This means that additive manufacturing has not been an option for companies that needed colored anodized metal parts as unique specimens or in small series until now. AlMgty is changing this, because the high-performance alloy developed by Hamburg-based aluminium specialist Fehrmann ALLOYS does not require silicon. As a result, parts and components printed with AlMgty can be easily anodised in various colours - as corrosion protection and for decorative purposes.
The same alloy in 3-D printing and as a casting!
AlMgty enables components to be produced for the first time from the same alloy by additive manufacturing, either as a prototype or a small series, or mass-produced using casting methods. AlMgty's mechanical properties remain very similar, whichever production method is used.
