3D Systems has announced the successful verification of properties for NASA’s new super alloy, GRX-810, using its Direct Metal Printing platform.
Developed by NASA, GRX-810 is an oxide dispersion-strengthened alloy with exceptional mechanical properties and resistance to extreme temperatures, making it an ideal candidate for use in critical aerospace components such as rocket engines, turbine blades, and exhaust nozzle components.
Through its oxide dispersion strengthening mechanism, GRX-810 promises to offer an unparalleled combination of strength, ductility, creep life, and heat resistance.
3D Systems and NASA said that the successful verification of properties represents a significant milestone in demonstrating the material’s performance across different equipment and processing parameters, further opening the door for its use in various aerospace components.
The provider of additive manufacturing solutions said that its collaboration with GRX-810 demonstrates its dedication to advancing the capabilities of 3D printing technology.
The company also said that its work on this high-performance resin, developed specifically for use in the aerospace industry, highlights its commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions to meet the unique needs of this demanding sector.
“The successful verification of the reported NASA GRX-810 properties is a testament to the incredible potential of this new super alloy, not only in its performance but in its capability to be produced repeatably,” said Michael Shepard, 3D Systems VP of the aerospace and defence segment.
