ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

    Additive Manufacturing for Ceramic Applications

    Wall Colmonoy engineers and manufactures Wallex® Cobalt Chromium Powders and Investment Cast Discs in our renowned facility in the UK. Produced to rigorous production standards, our cobalt chromium powders and discs represent exceptional quality honed over Wall Colmonoy’s 80-plus years of consistent technological innovation.


    WALLEX® COBALT-CHROMIUM ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING POWDERS

    Wallex® Cobalt Chromium Additive Manufacturing powders – spherical, nickel-free, non-magnetic, high strength and corrosion resistant. Ideal for many industrial applications.

    Wall Colmonoy’s Wallex® ASTM F75 CoCrMo, CoCrW, and CoCrMoW. Wallex® Cobalt-Chromium AM Powders are nickel-free non-magnetic Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing cobalt chromium based super alloys designed for use in powder bed additive manufacturing processes such as Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Powder-Bed Fusion (LBPF), Electron Beam Melting (EBM), Direct Energy Deposition (DED) and Binder Jetting (BJ).

    Wallex® Cobalt-Chromium AM Powders have excellent mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, proven biocompatibility, and a very high specific strength suitable for Additive Manufacturing applications. We produce three main chemistries:

    • Wallex® ASTM F75 CoCrMo AM
    • Wallex® CoCrW AM
    • Wallex® CoCrMoW AM

    With excellent biocompatibility, strength and corrosion resistance, these chemistries are often chosen for Biomedical applications, such as Medical and Dental Implants – including both Partial Denture and Prosthetics. Wallex® Cobalt-Chromium AM Powders have maximum flexibility and compatibility with a wide range of ceramics, thanks to their optimal coefficient of linear thermal expansion.

    Wallex® CoCr AM additive manufacturing metal powders are:

    • Gas atomised (unless specifically requested otherwise)
    • Highly spherical (unless specifically requested otherwise)
    • Free flowing
    • Very low oxide
    • High particle density
    • Free of Nickel

    All powders have expertly designed particle size distributions, supported by 80-plus years of powder manufacturing heritage.

    Wallex® Cobalt-Chromium Discs

    Wallex® Cobalt Chromium Discs are available in same main chemistries: CoCrMo, CoCrW, CoCrMoW, ensuring a compatible option for most ceramics. Chemical composition can be customized to individual requirements.

    All discs are investment cast in our 19,000sq-ft UK facility. Drawing on 50 years of casting expertise, our newest range of cast discs have an exceptionally fine microstructure, which greatly enhances machinability and extends tool life.


    Wallex® Cobalt Chromium Disc

    • Standard Disc dimensions are dia 98.5 x 8 / 10 / 12 /13.5 / 14 up to 25, though dimensions can be further customized
    • Special care is taken to avoid any contamination of with Beryllium, Cadmium or Gallium
    • Nickel content of less than 0.1%

    Wall Colmonoy has also developed a powder / binder composite that can be used to produce “Soft-Block” technology, a much softer form of disc, that is pre-sintered before it is then machined and then sintered again at full temperature. Download Investment Cast Disc Tech Data Sheet here.
