Aluminum 6061 Now Offered by Morris Technologies for DMLS
Alloy is ideal for a variety of applications

CINCINNATI, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Morris Technologies, Inc. (MTI), the global leader in additive metal manufacturing, now offers Aluminum 6061 for use on their EOS direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) machines. 

Aluminum 6061 is a general purpose alloy, and sees wide application in aerospace, transportation, consumer products, medical, and other industries. It demonstrates properties superior to casting aluminums.

In development at MTI since January 2011, Aluminum 6061 was released with full T6 heat treatment properties in late March 2012.  This material is precipitation hardened and heat treated to exceed the minimum requirement of the AMS standards for 6061-T6.  It is comparable to typical commercial wrought properties. A material data sheet for 6061 is available at www.morristech.com.

The introduction of Aluminum 6061-T6 is the latest addition to the 12 alloys Morris Technologies currently offers for producing metal parts using additive manufacturing.  Other alloys include titanium, cobalt chrome, stainless, Inconel grades, and others.  In early March 2012, MTI introduced Stainless 17-4 PH for DMLS with multiple heat treatment options.

Morris Technologies employs a Research & Development team focused on additive metal equipment, process, and alloy development. This enables MTI to develop materials and introduce them to the market in a timely manner.
