Stainless steel expands metal Additive Manufacturing range at Materialise

July 8, 2016

Materialise NV has announced the introduction of stainless steel to its range of materials available for Additive Manufacturing. The metal joins a list of over 30 other materials, including titanium and aluminium, now available for processing at Materialise.

The announcement follows the opening of Materialise’s new metal Additive Manufacturing facility in Bremen, Germany, in April 2016. With the introduction of stainless steel, Materialise brings the strength and flexibility of metal Additive Manufacturing to applications in machine-building and tool-making. Stainless Steel is also widely used for food-safe applications and medical instruments, it is well-suited to the production of durable prototypes, spare parts, ductwork and production tools.

With a global capacity of more than 130 Additive Manufacturing systems and wide variety of available technologies, Materialise has grown into one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive providers of AM services. Since its establishment in 1990, the company has been closely involved and actively contributing to the evolution of 3D printing from an emerging prototyping technology to a manufacturing method.
