Ti6Al4V is widely used in the Additive Manufacturing industry. It combines high strength, high hardness and ductility with high corrosion resistance and offers a 45% weight reduction compared to conventional steels. According to Digital Metal, Ti6Al4V meets ISO 22068.

Digital Metal is a metal Additive Manufacturing technology which enables the production of small and complex objects that would be costly, if not impossible, to produce using traditional methods.
