A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between Luxembourg-based AM 4 AM and R&D solutions provider Pint of France. A proposal was designed that the companies would together create prototypes made of HiPerAl, AM 4 AM’s flagship high-strength aluminium alloy designated for laser-induced additive manufacturing processes. The collaboration is estimated to manufacture and display its primary batch of products in the first quarter of 2023.After three years of rigorous research and development, in October 2022, AM 4 AM came up with its first material, HiPerAl. The aluminium alloy has been especially discovered for use in the aviation, space and automotive industry. It has a negligible weight which makes it perfect for lightweight aluminium components often used in vehicles and other high-precision end-user products. AM 4 AM has developed this particular aluminium alloy through its atmospheric and cold plasma technology, which the company is proud of and claims will yield more such components in the foreseeable future.When used to make specialised components, the HiPerAl material does not produce cracks retaining the smooth, machine-made gloss of a product. The partner firm, Pint, on the other hand, excels in Research and Development programmes related to additive manufacturing processes.
