ExOne, North Huntington, Pennsylvania, USA, has made available 17-4PH stainless steel (SAE Type 630 / UNS S17400) for metal Additive Manufacturing at its North Huntingdon production service centre. 17-4PH is a chromium-nickel-copper precipitation hardening stainless steel used for applications requiring high strength and a moderate level of corrosion resistance. Compared with other stainless steel alloys, it is also preferred for weldability.

The properties offered by 17-4PH are desirable for a wide range of applications in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, defence, and medical equipment. Manufacturers who supply components in 17-4PH will now have the opportunity to benefit from the advantages of Additive Manufacturing using ExOne’s binder jetting technology.

The new addition will complement the other AM-capable stainless steel alloys currently available at the production service centre, which include bronze-infiltrated 420 stainless steel infiltrated, bronze-infiltrated 316 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel highly sintered.

“We could not be more excited with the addition of 17-4PH to our suite of materials offerings,” stated Tim Pierce, VP Metal Commercial Products at ExOne. “Given its unique characteristics, the availability of 17-4PH broadens our addressable market and potential customer base. The applications are plentiful and we are ready to service our customers’ needs, from prototypes to serial production.”

ExOne will feature 17-4PH parts at the upcoming TCT Show being held at the NEC in Birmingham, UK from September 26-28.
