APWORKS and TOYAL are going to cooperate in the further development, production and distribution of the patented high – strength aluminum alloy Scalmalloy for additive manufacturing. The market for metallic 3D printing is developing at a breathtaking speed and besides the growing demand for high – performance 3D printing systems and integrated post-processing steps, the utilized materials are increasingly gaining importance.

The Airbus owned company recognized this need years ago with the development of its high – strength aluminum alloy – named Scalmalloy. This unique material, which has a comparable strength to titanium, was developed as one of the first materials exclusively for 3D metallic printing. By cooperating with one of the leading manufacturers of high – quality aluminum materials, APWORKS follows the lightweight trend of numerous industries. Combining this trend with the added value of the 3D printing achieves the best possible result s in terms of strength and weight optimization.

“We are convinced that TOYAL is a cooperation partner with whom we can ensure a continuous development of the material composition and the production process of our unique material for our customers,” says Sven Lauxm ann, Head of Sales and Marketing at APWORKS. “The close collaboration creates an excellent synergy between TOYAL’s decades of experience in the production and global marketing of aluminum-based products and APWORKS’ more intensive experience in processing Scalmalloy in 3D printing. Our common goal is to market Scalmalloy by the global presence of TOYAL for numerous customers and a wide range of applications ranging from aerospace to automotive up to robotics.”

TOYAL will produce the patented aluminum alloy Scalmalloy leveraging the company’s know-how and is also focussed on potential further developments in the composition of the alloy or in relation to an optimized production process. In addition, TOYAL will distribute the high-performance alloy through its own distribution network. TOYAL, as a solutions provider, helps to enhance the value of the customers’ products.

“The partnership with APWORKS will strengthen the value TOYAL brings by adding a reference material, Scalmalloy to the existing portfolio of high-quality aluminum based alloy powders for Additive Manufacturing applications,” says Jun Kusui, H ead of the Powder & Paste business unit of  TOYAL Group.
