We offer AlSi10Mg for SLM 3D Printing. AlSi10Mg features low density, good strength-to-weight ratio, high temperature and corrosion resistance. With excellent electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance, part printed by AlSi10Mg can be widely used in many applications. Final parts that are made with AlSi10Mg will process stress relief application.

3D printed aluminum parts are widely used in aerospace and automotive industry:
> Heat exchangers
> Engine parts
We utilize SLM which belongs to powder bed fusion technology to print aluminum parts:
Step 1. Prepare STL files for aluminum parts. Convert STL files into G-code through slicer program.
Step 2. Parameters are setting accurately on the SLM 3D printer. The first layer is rolling down by the powder roller, while the laser light selects an area and melt and fuse the materials together.
Step 3. The printing bed is moving downward, and the roller rolls down a new layer of material, and the laser light keeps melting and fusing the selective area. The process repeats until final parts are shaped.
Step 4. Takes time for cooling down build chamber and 3D printed aluminum parts.
Step 5. Take the aluminum parts out of build chamber and remove residual powders on the printed parts.
Step 6. Send the aluminum parts to post-processing for better surface, higher hardness, higher mechanical properties, etc.
