Höganäs adds 17-4 stainless steel to its Additive Manufacturing range

April 12, 2016

Sweden’s Höganäs AB has extended the range of materials suited to its Digital Metal® Additive Manufacturing technology by including high performance 17-4 PH stainless steel. According to Höganäs, 17-4 PH enables production of components with high strength and hardness.

The material is a hardening grade exhibiting considerably higher strength compared to the more commonly used austenitic 316L. It also provides improved corrosion resistance compared to 400 series ferritic stainless steels.

Digital Metal is a 3D metal printing technology enabling production of small and complex objects that would be costly, if not impossible, to produce using traditional methods.
