Ultrafuse 316L

Ultrafuse 316L

Designed for ultimate ease of handling on conventional Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printers. Ultrafuse 316L is an innovative filament for the production of 316L-grade steel parts.

Size: 1.75 mm

Ultrafuse 316L combines greater freedom of design with a low total cost of ownership. 3D-printed parts acquire their final properties, for example in terms of hardness and strength, through a debinding and sintering process developed by BASF, which has emerged as the industry standard. As a filament, Ultrafuse 316 L is 80% stainless steel and has a 20% polymer content which allows for easy printing on many open FFF desktop printers.

The 3 step process of FFF printing

In a 3 step process of FFF printing, debinding and sintering you will create a full metal part.

Examples of applications using Ultrafuse 316L:

– Tooling

– Jigs and fixtures

– Series production

– Functional parts and prototypes

Metal parts printed with Ultrafuse 316L

Ultrafuse 316L is cost-effective because:

– Our filament works with any open FFF printer, which means low investment cost in hardware

– We make use of a highly efficient and established post-processing technology used in the Metal Injection     Moulding (MIM) industry

– As this is a filament, material handling is much safer and very easy. This allows an easy material exchange in     comparison to handling with fine metal powders

Advantages Ultrafuse 316L:

– It is in general 1.4 to 2 times cheaper than most metal powders, with less investment in hardware

– There is a significant cost advantage for small and medium-sized components

– The overall manufacturing costs decrease significantly with increasing the lot size

– With additive manufacturing, you can create full stainless steel parts with a high degree of complexity
