Composite Metal Rod – 4140 Alloy Steel
Material Safety Data Sheet - 4140 Alloy Steel. Metal Rod for 3D Printing.Read More
for Desktop Metal®’s Studio System™
4140 Chromoly Steel is characterized by its toughness, high fatigue strength, abrasion and impact resistance which makes it ideal for industrial applications. It is a low alloy steel that contains chromium, molybdenum, and manganese.
Generative Design, Prototyping 4140
Prototype piston head for a reciprocating engine, optimized with generative design. Typically CNC machined from aluminum alloy, pistons can be time-consuming and difficult to rapidly prototype and test.
It often takes months or even years to move from design to production. With the Studio System, various piston designs can be easily prototyped and tested—speeding up product development timelines, reducing time to market, and introducing new opportunities for optimization, including generative design—all while avoiding CNC backlog and lead times.
Bound Metal Deposition™
Material: 4140 Alloy Steel
This custom sheet embosser is used in sheet metal fabrication. 3D printing with the Studio System reduces tool fabrication costs, shortens production run lead time, and enables rapid iteration
Sheet metal tools are used for a broad range of fabrication operations, including stamping, bending, countersinking and embossing.
No more waiting for machined or cast parts. Iterate faster by printing highly complex metal parts without leaving the office.
