The Metalysis process is a disruptive technology, offering an innovative route to produce a range of metals, alloys and intermetallic powders across the periodic table for additive manufacturing. A salient feature of this approach, is that it is possible to tailor the particle size and distribution of the product for a given additive manufacturing technique. Secondly, since the operation is conducted solely in the solid state, it is possible to combine elements of mismatched melting points and densities, which would be extremely challenging or impossible to homogenize via conventional means. The hardware to generate powders is both modular and agnostic to feedstock type, allowing adoption of a distributed manufacturing model, flexible to individual customer requirements. This presentation describes several case studies, ranging from currently available materials such as Ti-6Al-4V, through to novel High Entropy Alloys (HEA’s).
