What materials are used in SLM 3D printing?

SLM 3D printing utilizes a variety of metal powders as raw materials. The most common materials include:

Aluminum: Chosen for its low density, good electrical conductivity, and high thermal conductivity, making it suitable for automotive parts, mechanical components, and more.

Stainless Steel: Offers great hardness and flexibility, along with high wear resistance, which is essential for durable parts.

Titanium: Known for its corrosion resistance, low thermal expansion, and excellent strength-to-weight ratio.

Nickel-based Alloys: These alloys have excellent mechanical properties and are often used in high-temperature applications.

● Other materials, such as iron-based alloys, ceramics, and various specialized metals, can also be used depending on the specific requirements of the print job.
