ABD®-XAM

NICKEL-BASED SUPERALLOYS FOR ADDITIVE
MANUFACTURING

The ABD®-XAM alloy range
OxMet has created an entirely new class of novel superalloys specifically for the additive manufacturing process.
Created using OxMet’s Alloys-by-Design (ABD®) platform, the ABD®-XAM alloys deliver advanced material performance at high temperatures, with robust and repeatable additive manufacturability – crack-free.

Solving a big problem
For turbomachinery parts, AM offers unprecedented design freedom in cooling and aerodynamics – leading to better performance
But legacy, ‘difficult-to-weld’, Ni-alloys are not suited to the AM process. They crack under the extreme thermal gradients, and inhibit the use of AM for these critical parts
OxMet’s ABD®-XAM alloys overcome these challenges – so you no longer have to choose between printability and performance.
Alloy properties
ABD®-850AM and -900AM are the first high-performance nickel alloys designed specifically for crack-free manufacture.
Their g’ strengthened and thermally stable microstructure leads to outstanding mechanical performance, enabling the production of complex high-temperature parts in critical applications.


Wide processing windows make the alloys economic for production at scale:
  • No pre-heated bed
  • Wide layer thickness (60μm)
  • Wide processing window (prints well with Alloy 718 parameters)
  • Standard heat treatments
  • High yields

Applications
The ABD®-XAM alloys are suitable for turbomachinery parts:
  • Pistons
  • Burner nozzles
  • Brackets / Frames
  • Combustion chambers
  • High temperature housings
  • Vanes and stators
  • Ring segments / heat shields
  • Blades
New alloys for AM
Computational alloy design
The complexity of advanced alloys has made their development slow, empirical, and expensive.  OxMet’s ABD® software platform uses physical scientific models to quantify the effect of alloy chemistry on manufacturability and engineering properties.
Process optimisation and testing
OxMet’s state-of-the art additive manufacturing lab enables the company to validate its computational models, and to rapidly develop optimal process and post-process parameters for the alloys it develops.
