Improve Your Performance with Metal
A combination of high strength, low weight and excellent biocompatibility define Titanium alloys. When metal 3d printing it is critical for final part quality as well as for the total cost of operation (TCO) that the highly reactive titanium powder is not exposed to oxygen. You need vacuum chamber architecture to keep oxygen exposure under 25ppm during the entire print build. This ensures consistent part properties and nearly 100% powder usage.
Stainless Steel Alloys
Good for complex metal 3d printed parts with excellent strength, high ductility, wear and corrosion resistance. Stainless steel parts can be easily welded, CNC machined, spark eroded and polished - integrating conventional manufacturing processes with metal AM. Stainless steel parts produced with DMP/PBF/DMLS/SLM are typically used for machine components, food-safe applications, medical devices and surgical instruments. Steel alloys are often used for spare part production. Select alloys with thoroughly developed and tested print parameters.
Maraging Steel Alloys
Use genuine tool steel (1.2709) for the direct production of tools, molds and high-performance parts that require high strength and hardness. Metal 3D printing enables direct inclusion of conformal cooling channels for improved head management in injection molding tools, enabling shorter cycle times and longer tool lifetime. Shows good weldability and machinability for post-processing and integration of additive with conventional technologies for a reduced total cost. Available with thoroughly developed and tested print parameters.
Cobalt Chromium Alloy – For Industrial and Dental use
Used for highly corrosion-and wear resistant industrial parts that require high-temperature resistance. Can be used for reducing weight, improving fluid flow and consolidating parts for turbine and engine components, design and watchmaking products, parts with thin walls or fine features and mechanical components needing wear and corrosion resistance. Available with thoroughly developed and tested print parameters.
The potential for weight reduction through part design is a big benefit In metal 3D printing, Aluminum alloys are often used for light-weight, high strength applications in automotive, aerospace & machinery. Innovative applications such as mold design and specific heat exchanger applications make use of the high thermal conductivity of specific aluminum alloys. Available with thoroughly developed and tested print parameters.
Nickel Super Alloy
Used for complex parts, often including improved fluid flow in high-temperature and high-strength applications. Metal 3d printing achieves material properties that exceed those of different casting processes. Ideal for gas turbine parts (IGT), exhaust systems, machinery and process industry parts. Available with thoroughly developed and tested print parameters.
