Optionally with modification of mechanical, chemical, thermal, electrical, optical, biological and other material properties.
New material class with great potential
Modified material properties optional
There is a variety of different methods for producing open-pored aluminum structures.
Open-pored aluminum castings differ from all conventional technologies and offer functional, qualitative and economic advantages in comparison.
The material is available in industrial quantities, either as new, partly porous or in composition.
More than 400 clients in 12 countries already use open-pored aluminum structures in different fields of application.
Taking advantage of the modern METAKER® Surface process, the surface of light metals can be modified, micro constructed and activated which in turn will result in new gradient materials with new mechanical, chemical, electric, thermal, optical, haptic, biological and other material properties.
A simple and efficient series of processes and many adjustable material properties offset creative engineers in a new paradigm, opening up previously unthinkable potential for innovation as well as completely new, sometimes unexpected fields of application.
The world’s first serial application of modified, open-pored aluminum casting was implemented in 2016 in the field of exhaust gas treatment. Many more applications will follow.
