White Paper: Considerations for Optimizing Surface Finishing of 3D Printed Inconel 718

June 24, 2019

A newly published white paper by PostProcess Technologies, Buffalo, NY, outlines the challenges of surface finishing additive manufactured metals and alloys and opportunities for optimizing the process. The paper’s focus: nickel super alloy Inconel 718, 3D printed with direct metal laser sintering technology. Key considerations: part density and hardness, corrosion (chemical) resistance, grain structure and manufacturing factors, including the impact of print technology and print orientation on the surface profile. Learn how to reduce technician touch time while increasing consistency and productivity.
