Commonly used materials in additive manufacturing offer acceptable performances for most industrial sectors.

In applications requiring high performance, it is often necessary to consider non-standard materials offering better mechanical properties, such dynamic parts with fatigue loading, or applications operating at extreme temperature.

In such cases, the R&D team may conduct feasibility studies and then perform parametric optimization in order to utilize these new alloys for a production component.

Of particular interest are alloys with new compositions and Metal Matrix Composites.
