DiscoveryThe A20X Story
Aeromet’s metallurgical expertise and links to academic institutions allowed the company to take on a development project that led to the creation of an entirely new, unique aluminium alloy.
Exploring PotentialThe A20X Story
Aerospace ApprovalThe A20X Story
The unique characteristics and advanced properties of the alloy meant it had huge potential for aerospace applications. To unlock this potential and introduce the alloy to the market full aerospace approval was gained in 2012. AMS4471 for investment casting and AMS4482 for sand casting laid down a benchmark for design engineers. In addition, A20X™ has been approved on a customer specific basis by aerospace OEMs including Boeing.
Aerospace ProductionThe A20X Story
A20X™ cast parts are now in production for high strength, high temperature applications in aerospace, including structural parts and engine components. The unique characteristics of A20X™ open up new possibilities for cast parts, often allowing significant cost and weight reductions to be achieved.
