Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of Constellium aluminum?
Constellium powder has been selectively optimized for higher Laser Powder Bed Fusion productivity and simpler post processing. They demonstrate higher strength, thermal stability, and corrosion resistance compared to standard powder. Aheadd® CP1 is ideal for applications where high conductivity and increased productivity is required, whereas Aheadd® HT1 is the perfect solution for components that require high temperature resistance and strength.
How do you make fine aluminum powder?
Aluminum powder is produced through a process known as gas atomization where molten aluminum is atomized into small droplets using a high-pressure gas and then solidified. This yields a fine powder with even consistency and microstructure.
Which industries can use Constellium aluminum?
Aluminum from Constellium has high strength-to-weight ratio and good corrosion resistance, which is why it’s preferred by industries such as automotive, aviation, and aerospace where components have to be lightweight yet strong to increase fuel efficiency. Aluminum is also biocompatible, making it suitable for medical applications. Some other industries that use aluminum are tooling and fixtures, energy, prototyping, and consumer goods.
Is aluminum powder pure aluminum?
Metal powder like aluminum that are produced through gas atomization are typically of high purity with minimal satellites and consistent microstructure. But even then the powder may contain trace amounts of impurities or alloying elements, depending on the source material and production conditions.
