Alloyed and TANIOBIS are working collaboratively to identify, develop, produce and implement titanium and refractory alloy metal powders for advanced manufacturing applications, including additive manufacturing (AM).
Alloyed, which resulted from the merger of OxMet Technologies and Betatype, offers technologies for alloy design and optimization and for digital manufacturing applications usg its Process Control and ENGINE technologies and expertise with additive processes. TANIOBIS, now part of the JX Metals Group, has more than 60 years of experience with high-quality materials, powders and alloys based on tantalum and niobium. After JX Metals acquired Alloyed shares in January of this year, the collaboration of Alloyed and TANIOBIS has become more active.
Alloyed and TANIOBIS are collaborating on the development and analysis of new titanium and refractory alloys to expand the material palette for additive manufacturing. The alliance of the two companies enables a full end-to-end solution for the material development process, including material analysis and qualification, material production, component design and performance, and also pilot production. Alloyed and TANIOBIS are working on various projects, some with third parties, for a range of applications across the medical, aerospace and e-mobility industries.
“The Alloys By Design (ABD) platform, coupled with TANIOBIS’ long-standing and world-leading expertise with tantalum and niobium materials has the potential to open up some new and very exciting application areas for advanced manufacturing applications,” says Michael Holmes, managing director of Alloyed. “This capability together with the Betatype technology stack for adding performance to critical components makes this alliance even more powerful.”
“There is great synergy between TANIOBIS and Alloyed that I believe will serve our clients in limitless ways when it comes to providing end-to-end solutions for new and greatly improved applications with metal AM technologies,” says Katarzyna Kosowski, who heads up Corporate Business Development & Communication at TANIOBIS. “By collaborating with the experts at Alloyed and their exceptional ABD platform, we are extending our reach and capabilities into new and innovative areas for advanced manufacturing and particularly for additive manufacturing.”
Alloyed and TANIOBIS will have a combined presence at the upcoming Formnext Connect virtual event November 10-13 this year, which has now replaced the cancelled physical exhibition and conference. Representatives will be available from both companies on various of the online channels that the organizers are curating to discuss their alliance and the AM alloy powders that are being developed.
