Context of the project:
Laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) is the most mature technology for metal additive manufacturing (AM).
LPBF can be used to produce high-quality metal parts in geometries impossible to produce with conventional manufacturing, as well as offering very short lead times and no tooling costs.
Constellium has developed Aheadd® CP1, an additive manufacturing powder in a new alloy system designed specifically for LPBF technology. This world-leading product is generating huge interest in multiple industry segments, including aviation, satellite technology, semiconductor industry components, automotive and motor sports such as Formula 1 racing.
This 18-month VIE project is based at Constellium Technology Center’s site at Plymouth, Michigan in the United States, to reinforce the Constellium Additive Manufacturing team in North America.
Experimental work including printing trials will be conducted at the nearby LIFT center in Detroit.
Travel to Constellium partners in the USA and Canada as well as technical conferences and trade fairs will be involved. The project gives exposure to a start-up style innovation project embedded in a large, established company with deep expertise in aluminium and a worldwide customer network.
