AlSi10Mg fine-tuned for use with ProX® DMP 320 metal printer producing industrial parts with a combination of good mechanical properties and good thermal conductivity.
LaserForm AlSi10Mg (A) is formulated and fine-tuned specifically for 3D Systems DMP 320 metal 3D Printers to deliver high part quality and consistent part properties. The print parameter database that 3D Systems provides together with the material has been extensively developed, tested and optimized in 3D Systems’ part production facilities that hold the unique expertise of printing 500,000 challenging metal production parts in various materials year over year. And for your 24/7 production 3D Systems’ thorough Supplier Quality Management System guarantees consistent, monitored material quality for reliable results.
AlSi10Mg combines silicon and magnesium as alloying elements, which results in a significant increase in strength and hardness compared to other aluminum alloys. Due to the very rapid melting and solidification during Direct Metal Printing, LaserForm AlSi10Mg (A) in as-printed condition shows fine microstructure and high strengths. In the aerospace and automotive industry, LaserForm AlSi10Mg (A) is used for its light weight. Both innovative approaches to mold design and specific heat exchanger applications make use of the high thermal conductivity of this alloy.
