The advantages of Aluminum Zirconium alloys

The mechanical and physical characteristics of aluminum can be altered and enhanced by using alloys. Zirconium, for instance, is added to make aluminum alloys thermal-resistant. Or in other words, after the alloy is exposed to high temperatures, it will return to its original condition. More specifically, adding Zirconium to aluminum, inhibits recrystallization and allows grain […]

Why high-performance copper alloys are a catalyst for 3D printing

Since its first introduction in 1990, 3D printing or ‘additive manufacturing’ is rapidly advancing and new applications emerge each day. One interesting evolution is the rise of copper alloys as a very promising printing material offering multiple advantages. Currently, already 25% of all 3D metal printing is copper-based and the market is expected to grow […]

Lamifil produces pre-material for high performance conductors

In certain parts of an aircraft, such as the wings and engines and for certain sensors, the copper wire must meet the highest requirements. For these applications, high performance copper conductors are used, made out of high Chrome copper alloys as CuCrZr, CuCdCr and CuCrAgSi. Currently 10% of all copper cables in modern aircrafts are […]

Advantages of aluminum alloy profile wires

Conform extrusion or drawing allows for seamless production of long lengths of profile aluminum wire on coil, as an alternative for billet extrusion. The key advantage of profile wires is that their shape can be tailored to the end product and that process steps can be emitted. As Lamifil uses a continuous process these wires […]
