Quest 4 Alloys are not only able to supply metal powder but can quote for manufacturing also. We can be with you every step of the way from quotation of powder right down to the finished product, whether that be laser/ electron beam melting, blown powder technology or 3D inkjet printing.

Contact our sales team today for more information.

SELECTIVE LASER MELTING/ ELECTRON BEAM MELTING

  • Complex shapes
  • Thin walls
  • Better surface finish

BLOWN POWDER TECHNOLOGY

  • Free form & Cladding
  • Large parts
  • Coarser powders

3D INKJET PRINTING

  • High tolerance
  • Good surface finish
  • Thin walls
  • Small complex components

Additive manufacturing is the process of building parts by joining the materials layer by layer from a CAD file.

The advantages of Additive manufacturing are:

  • Rapid production of manufacturing aids.
  • Reduced costly machining
  • Increased efficiency
  • Allowing for production without tooling
  • Reduces waste
  • Allowing businesses to produce prototype parts on short lead times at a lower cost.
  • Nominal composition (%)
