Höganäs supplies harder, stronger 3D printed components

Höganäs extends its 3D printing capability by introducing high performance 17-4 PH stainless steel for Digital Metal® printing technology.

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.
