Presentation Title: make more with less – Additive Manufacturing Process and Advanced Materials, HKP and Nanotun3D


Additive (Layer) Manufacturing Process (AM, ALM) became an established and popular process in recent years. Precisely, this technology is as old as any general electric or gas welding technique. However, in today’s major understanding, a 3D-printing or 3D-printing-like process is the goal which insofar includes also net-shape forming with practically finished surface quality under fully automated and computerized control of materials flow. In fact this concludes and represents one of the political key drivers for so called Industry 4.0.
For the above, the potential number of candidates in functional materials is limited to those, that among other, provide powder or powder-in-slurry properties for a precise transfer into the “particle by particle” small forming focus of e. g. an ink-jet-head or to a corresponding thin layer powder bed. Thus particularly powder materials are required that provide a controlled fine and spherical shape and in dry utilization with a low adhesion/agglomeration tendency.
If it comes to HKP, this “High Kinetic Processing” technique represents the major route for reducing materials grainsize and nanostructural materials design in large volume at economic manufacturing and cost capability where the “nanostructure-making-equipment”, the Simoloyer® is well-known including technology and key advantages.
This paper is seeking answers, if, how and to what extent, HKP-materials can be utilized in the AL/ALM-process since HKP most frequently results not in spherical but equiaxial and/or flattened particle shapes e. g. such as ductile metal flakes (DMF).
One example given is from the ongoing Nanotune3D-project (EU-H2020 grant agreement No. 685952) where a novel dispersion strengthened Ti-6Al-4V-0,5dps powder/bulk (PM2019) targets ALM for consolidation. Dispersoids (dps) are Y2O3, SiC and core-shell [email protected] Enroute, the nanostructured powder composites are “pre-consolidated” by HIP and HP and subsequently atomized by EIGA to be commercialized in SLM and EBM processing.

Other progress & vision from ODS/NFA as well as light-weight Al-CNT-composite (Zentallium®) will be addressed. Also a still quite exotic and future application of high performance concrete (FuturZement|FuturBeton) at precisely adjusted setting time in a kind of macro-environment for printing houses on site in the construction field will be suggested. First ODS-product (PM2000) is available at Zoz since Mai 2019 !
