A division of Rosswag GmbH, one of the world’s leading providers of open die forged products with nearly 120 years of experience in the manufacturing of 400 different metal alloys, Rosswag Engineering has built decades of know-how in material science and combines its production expertise on SLM® machines with a complete in-house process chain from metal powder production, design, process simulation, and printing to CNC post-processing and heat treatment as well as metallurgical testing and quality control.

As a strategic partner of SLM Solutions in the advancement of the selective laser melting technology, Rosswag Engineering qualifies new alloy powders, even at small batch production (under 50kg), with parameters by combining the capabilities of their simulation software package, powder atomizer and three SLM®280 machines. With the ability to quickly produce special metal powders, simulate build results, print tests using SLM’s material development module, then post-process and inspect builds in-house, the time to market cycle for new materials is reduced from months to weeks.

The atomizer meets highest powder quality expectations through hot gas flow in the atomization chamber combined with the Close-Coupled-Vaporizer. That ensures a high rate of yield, specifically for the use in SLM® technology. Using the Material Development Module from SLM Solutions, Rosswag duplicates part positioning and uses rule-based parameter variation for an automated and systematic analysis of parameter sets. After completing the qualification process, comprehensive data for production, including metal powder characteristics, process parameters, mechanical values and chemical and metallurgical material properties are available.

Rosswag was recently the first company certified as metal powder manufacturer by TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH through their audit based on the AD 2000 Code for pressure equipment and the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED).
