Materials for SLM

SLM 3D printing commonly uses metal powders, such as titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum, to produce functional and high-strength metal parts with complex designs that are difficult or impossible to produce with traditional manufacturing techniques.

Materials for SLM
Titanium Alloy

Titanium Alloy Ti₆Al₄V is a common material widely used by engineers and manufacturers. Ti64 shows excellent performance in tensile strength and toughness. It is light in weight, has extraordinary corrosion resistance, and can withstand extreme temperatures. Titanium Alloy Ti₆Al₄V can produce highly precise parts, thin walls, sturdy structural parts, and complex components for almost every type of application.

Stainless Steel SS316L

Stainless Steel SS316L is one of the most popular metal materials with significant material properties. 316L stainless steel is ideal for high corrosion and high-temperature applications, even for specialized applications such as pharmaceutical and photography equipment, because it can withstand welding and corrosive chemicals. While 316L has been used with traditional manufacturing techniques such as CNC machining for years, it is still a newly matured 3D Printing material. 3D Printing unleashed the possibility of topology optimization by its ability to print hollow structurals, complex components, and lattice struct, even with a metal material. The post-processing procedures can be complicated and require trained specialists, so please make sure you are handling your project with professionals such as 3DSPRO.

Aluminum AlSi10Mg

Aluminum AlSi10Mg is a fine powdered metal material used for SLM 3D printing technology. AlSi10Mg is the go-to choice for most common applications because it is lightweight yet strong. It is a metal material, so parts printed with AlSi10Mg can easily handle weight load and extreme temperature. It is also relatively more cost-effective compared to other specialized metal materials. 3DSPRO found many industries are using AlSi10Mg, such as automotive, robotics, architecture, and design. However, using metal 3D Printing technologies, such as SLM, can be very costly in terms of time and money because most 3D Printed AlSi10Mg Parts require a series of post-processing: wire cutting, sandblasting, annealing, polishing, and so on. You can find a trustworthy 3D Printing service provider such as 3DSPRO to get your job done.
