He now brings his wealth of experience to high-performance powder sales. Fehrmann Alloys inspired him with the vision of standing out from the crowd with special alloys at an attractive price, and the opportunity to offer customers the unique benefit of scalability with the concept of “One design, one material, one to one million parts” enabled by the provision of materials that are equally suitable for 3D printing as they are for series production in casting.

“I consider material diversity to be the key to the broader, industrial application of 3D printing,” explains Jan-Peter Derrer, and accordingly he will be present as a contact at Formnext to introduce six new alloys from Fehrmann Alloys to the market. Derrer has traveled the world for his former employers, exchanged ideas with experts from other continents and built up a large network in the additive manufacturing sector. This experience, his sales know-how and his technical knowledge mean he is well-positioned to support the corporate growth of the material developer and powder supplier Fehrmann Alloys.

The Hamburg-based company is also presenting 6 new aluminum alloys, added to its AlMgty brand. The
Fehrmann alloys family is growing fast: after the success of corrosion-resistant, high-performance AlMgty80 and AlMgty90 which are available both for 3D printing and casting, the company now presents high-performance aluminum AlMgty70, AlMgty100 as well as standard cast aluminum AlMgty3, AlMgty5, and AlMgty50 now available for 3D printing. Furthermore, Fehrmann is introducing its new aluminum-zinc alloy AlZnty5 to the global market.

“One design, one material, one to one million parts.” That’s the Fehrmann motto. In the past few years, Fehrmann Alloys have developed high-performance aluminum alloys for 3D printing one-offs or small series production, as well as for casting huge volumes on an industrial scale. And some of the alloys, are suitable for extrusion technologies.

Fehrmann Alloys constantly innovates to add new value-adding materials to the 3D printing and casting industry including optimal cast and print parameters. To do so, the company leverages in-house expertise and long-lasting technology partnerships with leading institutes such as Fraunhofer Research Institution for Additive Production Technologies IAPT.

All the AlMgty-family alloys are printable, polishable, anodisable even in color, non-corrosive and show excellent mechanical properties that are transferable across additive manufacturing and casting. Numerous components printed from AlMgty will be on display at Formnext; they demonstrate the wide range of possible applications, including in the automotive sector, and the various finishing options.
