Key Benefits of Additive Manufacturing Materials

Our diverse selection of materials are chosen for their suitability and outstanding qualities across metals, alloys, ceramics, and composites all available in a range of lengths and diameters, for delivery anywhere in the world.

Having access to Goodfellow's specialist materials allows you to:

  • Create products with superior performance: The materials cater to applications requiring high strength, durability, or resistance to extreme conditions
  • Explore innovative designs: The availability of novel materials like HEAs opens doors for groundbreaking product development in various sectors
  • Tailor products to specific needs: The diverse material selection allows for choosing the best option based on the desired properties for the final product

There are numerous possibilities for the development and manipulation of materials, some of the advantages include:

  • Design freedom: It enables the production of highly intricate and complex geometries that are not feasible with traditional manufacturing methods
  • Minimal waste: Unlike subtractive manufacturing processes, where excess material is removed, additive manufacturing is a precise and efficient process that minimizes waste and so reduces costs and has a positive impact on the environment
  • Customization: Enables personalized products tailored to individual needs and preferences. This level of customization opens up new opportunities in industries such as healthcare (e.g. patient-specific implants and prosthetics)
  • Cost-effectiveness: It eliminates the need for costly tooling and reduces the time required for manufacturing. This makes it a cost-effective solution, particularly for low-volume production or rapid prototyping
