Hardened Steel for Engineering & Medical

Widely used in a variety of engineering, medical and even aerospace applications, Stainless Steel PH1 (15-5) is characterized with excellent mechanical properties, especially in the precipitation hardened state.

Overview

Stainless Steel PH1 is a pre-alloyed stainless steel within a fine powder form and is ideal for many part-building applications such as functional metal prototypes, small series products, individualized products or spare parts. This stainless steel is tough and resistant to heat and oxidization making it great for complex applications such as tooling inserts with conformal cooling channels.

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.
