DMLS Additive Manufacturing Material

Cobalt Chrome MP1

CoCrMo is a Metal Super Allot For High Temperature Engineering and Biomedical Applications

Cobalt Chrome MP1 (CoCrMo) is an additive manufacturing material for a direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) 3D printing process. This class of metal superalloy is designed for biomedical and high-temperature engineering and aerospace applications. Parts 3D printed with Cobalt Chrome are characterized by having excellent mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and temperature resistance.

Overview

Cobalt Chrome MP1 is a cobalt-chrome-molybdenum-based superalloy that offers designers a metal material which features excellent mechanical properties in terms of strength & hardness plus high corrosion, wear and temperature resistance. This metal is commonly used in biomedical applications (dental & medical implants) as well as high-temperature engineering applications.

Powered By DMLS

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is a laser-based technology of metal 3D printing that uses powdered metals. 3D printing with metal is the ideal alternative to complex designs that machining or casting can’t achieve as it offers the mechanical properties of aerospace standard materials and the design freedom of additive manufacturing.
