Arconic technology centers are engineering the answers
At Arconic we’ve transformed impossible ideas into commercial successes for more than a century. From the lightweight materials that enabled the Wright Brothers’ first flight, to the revolutionary aluminum-intensive Ford F-150, our innovations have helped create new industries and transform existing ones… and we’re just getting started. We continually seek out ways to advance cutting- edge technologies, such as 3D printing, which have the power to change the world. At Arconic, we are proud to partner with forward-thinking companies to engineer products and solutions that turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s next great innovation.
Arconic produces proprietary metal powders optimized for 3D printed aerospace parts
Our breakthrough Arconic Micromill™ technology produces an alloy that is 40 percent more formable and 30 percent stronger than today’s automotive aluminum and twice as formable and at least 30 percent lighter than high-strength steel. Micromill reduces a 20 day production process to a mere 20 minutes. The technology is allowing our customers to redefine the boundaries of vehicle design to create lighter, safer, more fuel-efficient and stylish vehicles for the future.
