The laser powder bed process involves rapid solidification which can be leveraged to design entirely new aluminium alloys, bringing properties unachievable with conventional alloys. Our experts at C-TEC have developed Aheadd®, a new generation of high performance aluminium powders for additive manufacturing. These new products are perfectly aligned with the requirements of powder bed fusion, allowing higher printing productivity and simplified post-processing.

Constellium’s new powders are designed and tailored based on customer needs for a wide range of applications including aerospace, motorsports and defence industries. Aheadd® solutions bring unmatched thermal stability, allowing replacement of titanium in selected applications to reduce weight and cost.
