Steels – the true work horse of AM metal alloy powders

Steels are the most widely used metal alloys in the industry. Good availability and the cost effectiveness of iron make steels a true work horse in most industries. Combining iron base with different alloying elements creates a wide variety of steels with different properties. Low-alloyed steels are used in the automotive and industries in general for production of construction and wear-resistant components. Tool steels, combining high hardness, wear and temperature resistance are used to produce moulds, stamps and cutting tools. Austenitic and duplex stainless steels have found many applications in the oil and gas industry. Several grades of precipitation hardening steels are developed and used in the aerospace industry. The additive manufacturing technology is providing substantial benefits for all these industries. Höganäs is offering steel-based metal powders in both the AM and Amperprint® series, covering a wide range of industrial demands in terms of cost, properties and standardization level.
