The selection of the materials was made based on the demand of the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) market. With 316L and 17-4PH two well-known materials in the MIM area are adapted to FFF. In addition, with copper and Inconel, we have two special materials that have their specific areas of application as described below.
The parts exhibit high corrosion resistance, toughness, ductility, as well as high acid resistance. This combination is ideal for a wide range of applications in aerospace, automotive, energy, jewelry, medical, shipbuilding and many other industries. The material is characterized by very good processing in downstream processes, e.g. welding.
