Stainless Steel 316L
Corrosion-Resistant Steel Alloy
316L Stainless Steel is produced using a powder bed tehnology known as direct metal laser sintering. 316L stainless steel is a widely used high-strength, high-hardness metal with excellent corrosion resistance ideal for automotive, industrial & aerospace applications.
Advantages of Metal 3D Printing
Strong, ultra-dense prints make metal printing perfect for end-use parts.
Easily produce geometries too complex to make using traditional manufacturing techniques.
Since 3D printed metal doesn’t require tooling, part turnaround times are reduced from months to days.
Print complex assemblies in a single run.
