AWI sells its exotic nickel alloy wire to 3D printing

Alloy Wire International (AWI) is now selling its Exotic nickel alloy wire to the 3D printing industry as more suppliers tap into the desire for cost-effective rapid production of parts. The company can manufacture its wire for ‘Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM)’, a process that produces near net shape components that require less machining and wastes less material than conventional methods.

It can also provide quicker lead times than conventional forging or casting without the need for complex tooling, moulds or dies.

The company’s wire and straight bars, which are produced at its state-of-the-art factory in the West Midlands, is made into springs, fire detection wire, fasteners and electrical instruments – all manufactured so that they work at high temperatures and/or in corrosive gases or liquids.
