Aeromet International Ltd,
headquartered in Worcester, England, UK, reports that its patented A20X™
powder, an aluminium alloy for Additive Manufacturing, has surpassed
the key 500 MPa Ultimate Tensile Strength (UTS) mark as part of its research project, HighSAP.

The HighSAP project is
supported by the UK’s National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme
(NATEP), and led by Aeromet with collaboration from Rolls-Royce, Renishaw and
Phoenix Scientific Industries (PSI). Aeromet states that the heat-treated
parts produced using A20X achieved a UTS of 511 MPa, a yield strength of
440 MPa and elongation of 13%.

Mike Bond, Director of
Advanced Material Technology at Aeromet, commented, “Since bringing the
A20X alloy to market for Additive Manufacturing five years ago, we have seen
significant adoption for high-strength, design-critical applications. By
working with Rolls-Royce, Renishaw and PSI we have optimised processing
parameters that led to record-breaking results, opening up new design
possibilities for aerospace and advanced engineering applications.”
