BEAMIT Group has recently been channeling its efforts into studying new alloys for use in the Energy industry resulting in the development of a printing process for René 80 RAM1.
René 80 is part of the family of Nickel-based superalloys with quite a high melting point and excellent oxidation resistance at high temperatures, making them particularly suited to applications in the Energy industry for turbines and valves, and for the Aerospace industry.
The first step in developing the AM process for René 80 was processing the alloy: the chemical composition of Nickel superalloy powder is very complex and a few critical issues often arise during the printing phase. The powder was modified by Elementum 3D using its patented RAM technology. Once the alloy’s chemical composition had been modified, BEAMIT Group
