Aubert & Duval and Alloyed present ABD-1000AM nickel superalloy

Aubert & Duval and Alloyed are pleased to announce the launch of Alloyed’s new nickel superalloy ABD-1000AM. It is the latest in a series of alloys developed specifically for additive manufacturing.

The agreement between Alloyed and Aubert & Duval extends the existing successful partnership, which already includes the ABD-900AM alloy. Under this agreement, Aubert & Duval will act as production partner for ABD-1000AM and supply Alloyed with the powder raw material used to manufacture the components.

Jean-François Juéry, EVP Business development & Strategy of Aubert & Duval, said: “We are very pleased to extend our metallic powder activities with our long-term partner Alloyed through this new agreement for ABD®-1000AM; for Aubert & Duval, the ABD alloys demonstrate the potential that can be realised by designing materials for the AM process, so adding a best-in-class alloy such as ABD-1000AM as part of our powder range portfolio is an exciting next step. We are convinced that Additive Manufacturing technology combined with High Temperature powder Alloys is a promising solution in particular to achieve carbon footprint reduction in various industries: over the last five years, we have indeed seen huge growth in interest and orders for these innovative alloys across all industrial sectors, so we are excited to see what new products and performance gains will be enabled by the commercial availability of ABD-1000AM.”

The AM industry has long sought to produce parts from alumina-forming alloys such as Ni247LC and Ni713, but the susceptibility of these alloys to cracking has significantly limited their application maturity. ABD-1000AM has been designed to be free from solidification, fluid and ageing cracking and is characterized by exceptional workability. The typical microstructure has a relative density of over 99.9% and extremely low defect levels, consisting of 55% gamma prime phase in the as-hardened state, a property only made possible by utilizing Alloyed’s ABD platform to specifically engineer the alloy for the AM process characteristics.

Michael Holmes, CEO of Alloyed, commented: “Extending our portfolio of alloys through the introduction of ABD-1000AM is a really exciting next step for Alloyed, greatly expanding our capability to deliver AM parts that can operate in some of the most extreme environments, and we’re thrilled to be doing it with Aubert & Duval as our trusted partner – their experience and track record of producing exceptional nickel powders is world-class, so we look forward AUBERT & DUVAL, a simplified joint stock company, whose registered office is located at 12 rue D’Oradour sur Glane, 92130 Issy les Moulineaux, is listed in the Nanterre Trade and Companies Register under number 380 342 808 to continuing our relationship with them. The alloy itself is set to bring great developments to the world of metal AM, unlocking applications that were previously deemed unfeasible due to the limited materials suited for the process, so we’re excited to start manufacturing parts and developing applications with our customers.”

The introduction of ABD-1000AM marks a significant advance in the development of materials specifically optimized for additive manufacturing. This opens up new possibilities for the production of parts that can operate in extreme environments and underlines the potential of additive manufacturing to deliver innovative and high-performance solutions for demanding industrial applications.
