Stainless Steel 316L

Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM)
tab stainless steel 316l dmls
An additive metal ideal for many applications including consumer goods, food processing, chemical processing, marine, medical devices, and any application requiring a non-magnetic material. This is a lower cost DMLM offering and is good for general prototyping. SS316L as-built is ~85 HRB (Hardness, Rockwell, B scale), and solution annealing is not necessary since mechanicals are ideal according to ASTM A403.

Key features

  • Good strength and creep resistance
  • Excellent weldability due to low-carbon
  • Molybdenum gives improved corrosion resistance
  • Excellent weld-ability, corrosion resistance & ductility


  • Parts requiring post-production processing
  • Consumer, automotive & aerospace
  • Parts requiring ductility and high strength
  • Parts requiring high corrosion resistance
