STRONG, STIFF & LIGHT WEIGHT
Our metal 3D Printed aluminium, also known as AlSi10Mg, is produced by cutting edge Selective Laser Melting Metal 3D Printing process. AlSi10Mg is an aluminium-based alloy with excellent mechanical properties, low weight, and corrosion resistance. Recommended for thin and lightweight design that still requires strength. Comes in raw matte metallic appearance. This material will have mechanical properties close to traditional casted aluminium parts.
Right out of production, this material is raw metallic matte in texture. Support structures are removed by grinding. Areas that requires support structures may have slight marks or cosmetic imperfection. For more cosmetic demanding applications, we can also provide further glass bead polishing to a slightly more consistent and slightly semi gloss surface upon request.
Our 3D Printed aluminium AlSi10Mg is produced by Selective Laser Melting system, also known as SLM Metal 3D Printing Process. Using this process, parts are constructed by sintering aluminium powder material via precisely controlled laser beam. During the build process, overhang regions are supported by supporting structures which has to be removed by grinding during post processing. SLM metal 3D Printing process allow higher degree of design freedom compared to conventional machining and milling process.
