Product information

AlSi10Mg is a typical casting alloy with good casting properties and is typically used for cast parts with thin walls and complex geometry. It offers good strength, hardness and dynamic properties and is therefore also used for parts subject to high loads. Parts in EOS Aluminium AlSi10Mg are ideal for applications which require a combination of good thermal properties and low weight, e.g. motorsports and aerospace interior. The parts can be machined, spark-eroded, welded, micro shot-peened, polished and coated if required.

Properties

  • good casting properties
  • good strength and hardness
  • high dynamic properties

Applications

  • Functional prototypes
  • Series-production parts
  • Motorsports
  • Automotive/Series Production Vehicles
  • Aerospace Interior

Product information

Titanium Ti64 is a Ti6Al4V alloy. This well-known light alloy is characterized by having excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance combined with low specific weight. The ELI version (extra-low interstitials) has particularly high purity.

Properties

  • Light weight with high specific strength (strength per density)
  • Corrosion resistance
  • commonly used in biomedical applications
  • Laser-sintered parts fulfil requirements of ASTM F1472 (for Ti6Al4V) and ASTM F136 (for Ti6Al4V ELI) regarding maximum concentration of impurities
  • Very good bioadhesion (cell growth tested with good results) 

Applications

  • Functional prototypes
  • Series-production parts
  • Aerospace
  • Motorsports
  • Biomedical Implants

Product information

The iron-based alloy StainlessSteel 316L is characterised by a high ductility and corrosion resistance. It can be used in many areas, such as for watch and jewellery making, in the medical field for surgical aids, endoscopic surgery and orthopaedics or in aerospace for the manufacture of mounting parts. The material meets the requirements of the ASTM F138 norm (“Standard Specification for Wrought 18Cr-14Ni-2.5Mo Stainless Steel Bar and Wire for Surgical Implants, UNS S31673″). It has been optimised for use on the EOSINT M 280 system. The manufactured parts can be further processed or polished.

Properties

  • excellent corrosion resistance
  • high ductility
  • post-processing possible
  • meets the requirements of the ASTM F138 norm (“Standard Specification for Wrought 18Cr-14Ni-2.5Mo Stainless Steel Bar and Wire for Surgical Implants, UNS S31673″)

Applications

  • Watch and jewellery making
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Food and chemical plants

Product information

MaragingSteel MS1 is a martensite-hardenable steel. Its chemical composition corresponds to US classification 18% Ni Maraging 300, European 1.2709 and German X3NiCoMoTi 18-9-5. This kind of steel is characterized by having excellent strength combined with high toughness. The parts are easily machinable after the building process and can be easily post-hardened to more then 50 HRC. They also have excellent polishability.

Properties

  • easily machinable
  • age hardenable up to approx. 54 HRC
  • good thermal conductivity

Applications

  • Series-production parts
  • Tooling (e.g. aluminium die casting)
  • Meachanical Engineering
  • Aerospace
