Actual Scale of FGM Rocket Nozzle

“Actual Scale of FGM Rocket Nozzle” InssTek successfully manufactured the real size of the Rocket Nozzle using FGM. The field of aerospace is an extreme environment. Each part of the Rocket Nozzle requires different characteristics and if two different materials are directly attached, the bonding area may be weak. For the best result, InssTek's Hexa Powder Feeding and precision powder feeding technology (PCM-Multi) were used to manufacture multi-material parts easily.

Utilizing an InssTek's 3D printer, the researchers of Skoltech(the Russian Scientific and Technical Institute) were able to start out by dispensing a powder made of one metal, then gradually blending it with another metal powder until eventually only the other metal was being dispensed. The magnetic properties of the metal rod continuously change from para- to ferromagnetic and back due to the shift in the relative proportions of the two constituent materials: marine-grade stainless steel (labeled 316L) and aluminum bronze (Al-Bronze). However, when they were mixed together, an alloy was formed that exhibited soft ferromagnetic properties. This is an amazing achievement for highly efficient and suitable for manufacturing even large-size parts quickly and a way to discover new alloys. [A paper on the research – which also involved scientists from Russia's St. Petersburg State Marine Technical University, National Research Center Kurchatov Institute, and Belgorod State University – was recently published in The Journal of Materials Processing Technology: Gradient soft magnetic materials produced by additive manufacturing from non-magnetic powders.]

ZTP-DeD: Repairing MRO & Medical

ZTP-DeD ZTP-DeD is a near α titanium matrix nanocomposite (nTMC) designed specifically for additive manufacturing (AM). The powders possess very high mechanical properties at room and high temperature compared to forged and additively manufactured Ti64. - MRO ZTP-DeD is already in use for the MRO market to repair landing gears and produce shackles. Shackles made of ZTP-DeD are lighter and have a higher allowable load value than Ti64, so it is good to fit for the aerospace industry. - Medical HIP CUP coating made using ZTP-DeD powders are advantageous for biological bone growth because of pore size and porosity. It is also used for coating in the medical field to produce very hard acetabular cups using DMT® machines from InssTek company. - InssTek’s DMT® DMT® is Direct Metal Tooling, developed by InssTek is categorized as Direct Energy Disposition(DED) technology according to ASTM standards. Using vision cameras, ZTP-DeD processed via DMT technology analyzes and controls the height of the melt-pool in real-time by controlling laser power. Shackles and HIP CUP coatings were made using ZTP-DeD powders and have passed the mechanical properties test suitable for each field.
