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.
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.
When the greatest share of a product’s environmental impact comes from producing its feedstock, selecting the right material is critical. For 3D printing and manufacturing in plastic, biopolymer could be the first step toward a more sustainable model.
A research organization in Germany is developing a laser beam source that operates with a green light, enabling selective laser melting of a copper alloy.
High-end metal additive manufacturing relies on the perfect gas composition to create products that meet the required material properties. But gas such as argon is also key to metal powder production, storage and postprocessing.
