This novel delivery system is designed to address critical industry imperatives, including sustainability, process stability, material quality, and operator safety. By containing the aluminum alloy powders in a secure and controlled environment, both ADDDAM and IMR are committed to reducing environmental impact and enhancing overall operational safety.

One of the key highlights of this partnership is the mutual benefit it affords both parties. ADDDAM gains access to tailored materials delivered in eco-conscious packaging, aligning seamlessly with their commitment to sustainable practices in highly automated industrial aluminum 3D printing. Simultaneously, IMR stands to further optimize its production planning, operational and energy efficiency as well as reproducibility while reducing packaging efforts. Reduction of packaging waste together with reduced exposure of operators to aluminum alloy powders go hand in hand with a reduced CO2 footprint and further improvements for quality-critical aspects of the powder production process.
