February 7, 2023
3DEO has launched 316L austenitic stainless steel. The new material is available to customers across all industries, especially in medical, industrial, marine and food processing.
A fully austenitic, non-magnetic stainless steel, 316L (equivalent to UNS S31603) maintains performance at room and moderately elevated temperatures, as well as ductility and mechanical performance. This weldable material is corrosion resistant, and is made for applications that will experience harsh environments, according to 3DEO.
“With material properties that meet the MPIF Standard 35 standards, introducing 316L to our customers will allow them to take advantage of the benefits, time-savings and cost-efficiencies of 3D printing using a biocompatible, corrosion-resistant material like 316L for their high-demand applications,” says Matt Petros, CEO and co-founder of 3DEO.
316L is commonly used in applications such as laboratory equipment, impellers and pumps, engine parts, food processing equipment, jewelry, kitchen appliances, surgical instruments, marine, chemical and petrochemical processing, and more.
Joining 17-4PH stainless steel, 316L marks the company’s latest expansion in the materials division, with a growing list of new materials undergoing testing currently, and set to release in 2023. Among those metals in development is pure copper launching in Q2.
