New Materials for Metal Binder Jetting

Material variety is a critical success factor for the future mass adoption of Metal Binder Jetting.

As a global leader in metal powder solutions, we are working on this challenge by leveraging our combined powder know-how from PM, MIM, and AM processes. We've already introduced the materials 316L, 17-4PH (booth stainless steels) and FSLA (Free Sintering Low Alloy) that have been fully tailored to the Binder AM process.
