HEA powder made with our upcoming device.
HEA ALLOY ATOMIZATION
This week we carried out HEA alloy atomization based on Fe, Ni, Cr, Mn for our friends from National Centre for Metallurgical Research in Spain (CENIM-CSIC). The process of atomization ran smoothly and the finished product in powder form was shipped. It will support search for new ductile compositions.
We invite to cooperation research institutions, but also R&D departments. Especially those dealing with searching for new material solutions in Additive Manufacturing technology. We are capable to atomize most metallic materials with different chemical composition in any form. Failed printouts or cast parts aren’t an exception (as in the picture below).
As part of academic community we are happy to support cutting-edge research with our experience.

Laser welding and ultrasonics
Laser welding is a promising metal join technique especially for narrow and deep welds. One of the problems that engineers and welders face nowadays with high-alloy metals is hot-cracking of welds. This is usually the result of segregation occurring during the welding process. One of the methods that can minimize the segregation phenomenon is to subject the workpiece to ultrasonic vibrations. I would like to introduce you in an interesting article on the influence of ultrasound on the formation of pores and cracks during welding of nickel-based alloys using a laser beam.

HIGH ENTROPY ALLOYS
High entropy alloys are known for their promising mechanical properties and endless chemical customization possibilities.
We recently tested our in-house atomizing platform that will transform the R&D of additive manufacturing materials with certain W-based HEAs. You can expect it to be revealed by the end of the month, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, we encourage you to read interesting paper which shows potential of refractory metals based HEAs.

New year comes with new opportunities and energy for further development. Our recent work with rePowder provided us with very promising results – we developed a solution that is able to atomize various alloys.
We started the new decade with another small success — rare 15k alloy gold atomization. Our team managed to atomize the small jewellery material in order to obtain the sample of powder, which you can see in the picture.
What would you like to print out of it?
We checked also the particle size distribution and chemical composition of the alloy. Over 60% yield was less than 100 µm and no contamination was visible in the atomized powder. Fine particles can be used for metal 3D-printing as well as for other powder metallurgy applications, while higher chemical purity makes rePowder tool perfect for R&D in precious metal field.

Right: And the results of successful atomization!
