6K, the world’s leading developer of microwave plasma technology for the production of advanced materials used in additive manufacturing, lithium ion batteries and other industrial markets, today announced it can successfully design and produce High Entropy Alloy (HEA) spherical powders. By partnering with Castheon, a leading US-based additive manufacturing research and comprehensive advanced manufacturing solution provider, the two companies have 3D printed the world’s first metal alloy HEA part on a laser powder bed fusion printer. Onyx HEA1000 and over fifteen other metal alloys, ceramic powders and parts are premiering at Formnext in Frankfurt, November 19-22, 2019, Stand E22 in Hall 12.

“This HEA1000 demonstrator is an example of the power of 6K UniMelt plasma production technology,” commented Dr. Aaron Bent, 6K CEO. “We are fulfilling our desire to allow additive manufacturing designers to ‘Build Boldly’ by providing access to designer alloys not previously possible with today’s melt alloy or atomization processes. Our technology finally provides a scalable and cost-effective way to access non-eutectic parts in volume, and we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg.”
