Alloyed Receives Hybrid-AM Research Grant as Part of Auto-Parts Consortium
Alloyed has announced that, as part of a consortium, it has been awarded a grant to research, develop and test an innovative hybrid production process to address a number of the key limitations of additive manufacturing (AM) for the automotive sector, specifically electric vehicles (EVs). The Casting-Hybrid-Additive-Manufacturing-Parts-Production (CHAMPP) consortium, which received the grant, features three key partners: Alloyed, Brunel University London's Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST), and Gestamp and its affiliate Autotech.

The project aims to build on the consortium's prior alloy and hybridization research to develop and test new aluminum alloys better suited to future automotive needs. The focus will be on developing alloys that can first be cast and then subsequently built on to produce custom/complex features using AM techniques with a compatible alloy that maintains mechanical properties and performance.

Strong and Ductile 3D Metal Printed Components
Since 3D printing builds to near net or finished dimensions, vacuum heat treating is an absolute necessity. Vacuum levels that approach 1 X 10-6 Torr produce clean and oxide free surface conditions that are metallurgically stable. Critical temperature control is also a must to avoid cracking and producing a strong and ductile part.

Watch: More Metal Alloys Available for Binder Jetting, Including 6061 Aluminum
A development project between ExOne and Ford Motor Co. has resulted in a process for rapid and reliable binder jet 3D printing and sintering of 6061 aluminum that delivers properties comparable to die casting. Collaborative and individual patents are expected to be filed by Ford and ExOne as a result of the project.

“This is a breakthrough in making 3D-printed and sintered parts for the auto industry,” says Harold Sears, Ford AM technical leader. “High-speed aluminum 3D printing paves the way for other opportunities that we’re just now starting to take a look at because of the ability to create complex parts with aluminum that previously weren’t possible.”
