Stainless Steel Expands Metal 3D-Printing Repertoire at MaterialiseNovember 4, 2017
Materialise NV, headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, has introduced 316L and 1.4404 stainless steel into its metal 3D-printing portfolio. The additions join a menu of more than 30 materials, including titanium and aluminum, at one of Europe’s largest factories for 3D printing. This announcement follows the 2016 opening of Materialise’s new metal 3D-printing factory in Bremen, Germany. By expanding its material portfolio, Materialise aims to better serve its industrial customers in the sectors of manufacturing, automotive and aeronautics.
Through the introduction of 316L, a low-carbon high-strength stainless alloy with corrosion-resistant properties, the company plans to capitalize on applications in machine-building and toolmaking. In addition, the material is widely used for food-safe applications and medical instruments, and is well-suited to the production of durable prototypes, spare parts and ductwork.Materialise: www.materialise.com
