Holdson Limited, Skelmanthorpe, UK, a developer of electrochemical equipment for post-processing additively manufactured components, and the University of Birmingham, UK, are collaborating in an attempt to accelerate the use of refractory metals and Nitinol (a nickel-titanium alloy) within the Additive Manufacturing industry.

Through the partnership, the organisations will explore how a range of material types are additively manufactured and post-processed for use in multiple applications.

“This collaboration aligns with Holdson’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in manufacturing,” stated Neil Dickinson, Chief Technology Officer, Holdson. “We are eager to work in partnership with the experts at the University of Birmingham to leverage our collective know-how in exploring new developments within AM.”

The University of Birmingham has already successfully carried out projects that resulted in the Additive Manufacturing of sample parts with Nitinol and various refractory metals, and has now teamed with Holdson to further the understanding of surface treatments. In doing so, the university will investigate the effects on the structural properties in additively manufactured components.
