Metal 3D printing materials are used in a wide range of applications, such as petrochemical engineering applications, aerospace, automotive manufacturing, injection molds, light metal alloy casting, food processing, medical, paper, power industry, jewelry, fashion, and more.
However, because of the material properties of the metal 3D printed material, it has a specific range of applications. Therefore, the process of selecting a metal 3D printed material is a process that weighs a number of factors. Moreover, 3D printed metal can't be judged by the parameters of metal 3D printers. Each metal material has its own limit points, including application, function, stability, durability, aesthetics and economy. Factors to consider.
Nowadays, metal powders used in metal 3D printers at home and abroad generally include: tool steel, martensitic steel, stainless steel, pure titanium and titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, nickel-based alloy, copper-based alloy, cobalt-chromium alloy, and the like.
