Formetrix to Present at AMPM

June 12, 2019

Formetrix joins industry leaders at this year’s AMPM, America’s leading metal additive manufacturing conference in Phoenix, AZ June 23-26th for the latest technology developments in this rapid growing space.

Faith Oehlerking will present Formetrix’s latest developments in their presentation ‘3D Printed Steel Tooling and Dies for High Volume Part Production.’ 

In this presentation, we will present the limitations in using traditional wrought tool steels in 3D laser powder bed fusion printing and the need to design new alloys specifically for 3D printing in this market. After comparing the properties of Formetrix alloys to industry standard tool steels, we will review specific case studies involving aluminum die casting, hot stamping, and compression forming to demonstrate how these new materials perform in high volume part production environments.
