Vertex Now Offers 3D-Printed Hastelloy-X Superalloy Capability

(l-r) Vertex Manufacturing's Tim Warden and Steve Rengers with their Sapphire Inconel 718 AM solution from Velo3D. They recently purchased a second one from Velo3D that is dedicated to Hastelloy-X.

Vertex Manufacturing, a Cincinnati-based contract manufacturer, has purchased a second end-to-end additive manufacturing (AM) solution from VELO3D Inc.-this time dedicated to the superalloy Hastelloy-X. Vertex is the first contract manufacturer to own a VELO3D system that processes this high-performance material. The company previously acquired a VELO3D solution for Inconel 718 alloy.

"Vertex was created by industry pioneers, originally of Morris Technologies, with a mission to help customers needing advanced manufacturing solutions for both development and production programs," said a company spokesperson. "Staffed by experts with decades of experience in materials, methods and quality, Vertex offers a range of services in addition to AM, including advanced multi-axis CNC machining, rapid castings and final inspection of manufactured parts."

"While our Inconel 718 Sapphire machine fits the needs of many industries, the Hast-X machine will meet our customers' specialized requirements for high-temperature, high-pressure, long-lifetime applications in the aerospace, and industrial gas turbine markets," said Vice President Tim Warden.

Hastelloy-X is not a heat-hardened material, so it does not become brittle at high temperatures, and its high oxidation resistance provides durability over years of continuous use. "3D-printed Hast-X provides unique, robust material qualities. Combined with the fact that Vertex is AS9100 certified, the solution will allow us to help our customers take programs from development to production much quicker," said Warden.

Steve Rengers, President of Vertex, said, "VELO3D's technology-in particular the noncontact recoater and the ability to perform challenging geometries without supports-is a differentiator. That is what Vertex is all about, so it is a great collaborative relationship we are looking to expand upon."

Benny Buller, founder and CEO of VELO3D, said, "Accessing end-to-end advanced 3D printing through a contract manufacturer such as Vertex is a valuable option for OEMs of every size looking to optimize supply chain efficiency."

"We are going to continue to see product development cycles shorten as AM has a significant impact on reducing manufacturing times," said Rengers. "This will be in defense-critical areas such as hypersonics, as well as in more traditional aerospace and aviation applications. We are also seeing a lot of movement happening in areas such as alternative energy, remote energy and the extension of human lifestyle quality through orthopedic implants. We are building our business supporting those needs with the best technology available."
