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.

When superior strength and toughness is your No. 1 priority

Maraging steel 18Ni300, 1.2709

Maraging steel is a carbon-free iron-nickel alloy where cobalt, molybdenum, titanium and aluminium are added. The term maraging steel is a blend of the two words ‘martensitic’ and ‘aging,’ reflecting the special heat treatment process when steel microstructure transforms into martensite during aging. Maraging steels are known for their superior strength and toughness without losing ductility.

When superior strength and toughness is your No. 1 priority

Maraging steel 18Ni300, 1.2709

Thanks to its low carbon content, maraging steel has good machinability. Maraging steels also offer good weldability, but must be aged afterwards to restore the original properties to the heat-affected zone. When a maraging steel part is heat-treated, the alloy has very little dimensional change. This is why it is often machined to its final dimensions before the heat treatment.

When superior strength and toughness is your No. 1 priority

Maraging steel 18Ni300, 1.2709

Maraging steels have very high and stable mechanical properties. The steels are used for construction components in the aerospace industry, as well as for production of different types of tools and moulds. The ability of the additive manufacturing process to create internal cooling channels makes maraging steel powder a great choice for manufacturing of polymer injection moulds.
