2. Material selection
In what environment does your component exist? Based on our 150-year material knowledge and in-house powder manufacturing capabilities, we are expert at matching material to application. We offer the widest range of AM-alloys around and even customize materials.
For more than 15 years, we have been developing and selling world-leading gas-atomized AM-powder under the OspreyTM brand. Before any production, each batch of new powder is analyzed in our fully accredited metallurgical and powder laboratories. This is critical for success. Particle size and shape, chemical composition, and the porosity of the powder are all factors of an optimal outcome.
We have experience from printing in a vide range of materials such as:
- Tool steels, including maraging steels
- Stainless and duplex steels
- High temperature materials
- Nickel-based alloys
- Titanium alloys
- High entropy alloys
- High speed steels
- Cemented carbides
