Neil Mantle, Head of Additive Layer Manufacturing at Rolls-Royce said: ”We are delighted to be working with SLM Solutions and using their quad-laser machines. Rolls-Royce continues to develop our additive layer manufacturing capability to ensure we are at the forefront of advanced manufacturing. We knew that transferring our expertise and knowledge gained from single laser machines to multi-laser platforms would require a close working relationship and SLM Solutions have provided this.”
Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM), Statesville, NC, has announced a partnership with Erie, CO-based Elementum 3D, provider of additive manufacturing (AM) materials. The agreement combines KAM’s AM technology with Elementum 3D’s advanced materials such as aluminum 6061 powder, a previously unprintable aerospace and automotive aluminum alloy.

Key Considerations for Metal AM Process Parameters
To proceed from a design concept to final part, one must account for
optimization of various processes and process parameters along the way.
Even when one manages to select an AM technology and material for an
application, each system offers a wide variety of processing parameters.
Thus, adoption of metal AM requires an understanding of the complete AM
