The ExOne Company, a global provider of three-dimensional (“3D”) printing machines and 3D printed and other products, materials and services to industrial customers, has announced recently the release of 304L stainless steel as a printable material through its Production Service Center (“PSC”) in North Huntingdon, PA and as a qualified material on its printers. 304L is the most commonly used stainless steel and is suitable to applications in a wide range of industries due to its high durability, corrosion resistance, and low cost. Some of the common applications include components for appliances, marine, medical, kitchenware, fasteners, and heat exchangers.
304L is the latest high density, single alloy material to be offered by ExOne. ExOne has been offering 316L and 17-4PH as qualified materials through its PSC and to its printer customers since 2017.
ExOne’s PSC offers printing of matrix metals including 420 stainless steel infiltrated with bronze and 316 stainless steel infiltrated with bronze.
