3D Systems LaserForm® AlSi7Mg0.6 (A), DIRECT AGING Aluminum Alloy Material
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Aluminum Alloy

Material Notes: AlSi7Mg0.6 fine-tuned for use with ProX® DMP 320 and DMP Flex and Factory 350 metal printer to produce industrial parts with a combination of good mechanical properties and improved thermal conductivity. LaserForm AlSi7Mg0.6 (A) is formulated and fine-tuned specifically for 3D Systems DMP 320 and DMP Flex and Facotry 350 metal 3D Printers to deliver high part quality and consistent part properties.

AlSi7Mg0.6 combines silicon and magnesium as alloying elements, which results in good mechanical properties. Due to the very rapid melting and solidification during Direct Metal Printing, LaserForm AlSi7Mg0.6 (A) in as-printed condition shows a fine microstructure and obtains a good combination of strength and ductility. Lower silicon content improves electrical and thermal conductivity properties compared to AlSi10Mg while the increased magnesium content maintains mechanical properties similar to AlSi10Mg. Heat treatment allows electrical and thermal conductivity to be fine-tuned to the needs of the application. Additionally, the lower silicon content improves the anodization quality as well as the corrosion resistance. LaserForm AlSi7Mg0.6 (A)’s low material density is well suited for the aerospace and automotive industry. Innovative applications such as mold design and specific heat exchanger applications make use of the high thermal conductivity of this alloy.
