Stainless Steel 17-4 PH

Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM)
tab stainless steel 17 4 dmls
An additive metal ideal for many applications including functional prototypes, small parts, individual products, spare parts, and any application requiring magnetic material that can be hardened. This is a cost effective DMLM offering and is good for general prototyping.

Key features

  • Pre-alloyed, precipitation hardenable stainless steel
  • Good machining characteristics
  • Good mechanical properties
