Alloyed Formalizes Company Name Change
New corporation brings together the technology of Alloys-By-Design, Betatype and Alloyed Digital Manufacture to provide solutions for optimizing advanced digital metal manufacturing applications.
Edited by AM Staff
The conclusion of the acquisition and merger of Betatype with OxMet Technologies, which took place at the end of 2019, has been formalized with the merged company assuming the legal name of Alloyed as its corporate entity.
Bringing together the technology brands Alloys-By-Design (ABD), Betatype and Alloyed Digital Manufacture (ADM), Alloyed provides solutions for optimizing advanced digital metal manufacturing applications. Alloyed can offer its clients the development of customized alloys via ABD, advanced process control and performance via Betatype, and expert metal additive manufacturing (AM) production capabilities (from application development through to pilot production) via ADM. In this way, Alloyed provides customers with a palette of complementary expertise and services that optimize the production of metal parts through digital manufacturing.
Alloyed uses advanced metallurgy, the latest simulation techniques and a profound understanding of the factors that drive performance. The company focuses on multiscale materials and multiphysics modeling, prediction and analysis of fatigue/TMF and failure, and the optimization of complex manufacturing processes, including AM.
3D printing requires different finishing considerations than traditional manufacturing. One expert offers do’s and don’ts for approaching the finishing of additively manufactured parts.
3D printed metal parts typically feature little stock remaining for finishing. Grinding is potentially an effective solution for meeting final tolerances. An abrasive technology provider investigates grinding as a complement to AM.
A bracket redesign has a lot to say about the successful application of metal AM. One of the takeaways: Support structures are worth the effort!
